        Really wasn't sure about this piece to start with, however the more our choir is learning it,it is starting to sound sound beautiful. Worth working on.

        Looks good, possible for reasonable parish church choir to sing well and I know the congregation will enjoy it. Musicroom as reliable as ever; correct quantity of correct item arraived as soon as it possibly could.

        This is a lovely piece of music which our little group of singers have been looking forward to since the wedding of Kate and Wills. We are a group (SATB) who meet in our homes to sing for pleasure. We get great satisfaction from learning and singing anthems by John Rutter. The only downside is that the accompaniment is for organ, which will challenge the ingenuity of our pianist. It is only by inspection of the sample page, that this is apparent, and might cause a problem to some groups. Click on More Details to listen to the Westminster Abbey performance. Sheer pleasure!

        Useful addition for church services which is not too demanding.
