Oxford Choral Classics: English Church Music - Volume 2 (Canticles And Responses)

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Oxford Choral Classics: English Church Music assembles in two volumes around 100 of the finest examples of English sacred choral music. The second volume presents a wealth of service material suitable for use throughout the year. The evening canticles are given due space, with seventeen settings, including those by Byrd, Gibbons, Purcell, Walmisley, Stanford, Noble, Howells, Walton, and Tippett. Also included are settings of the Te Deum and Jubilate Deo, alongside seven settings of the Preces and Responses and two additional early Lord's Prayers. The selection is completed with three supplementary items: a set of previously unpublished Psalm chants by Howells, John Sanders's Good Friday Reproaches, and a written-out Order for Compline.

Robert King has prepared completely new editions of all the pre-twentieth-century works, going back to the earliest and most reliable manuscripts or printed sources. Playable keyboard reductions have been added for the majority of unaccompanied items.

        The first time I have encountered one book containing so many Canticles and Responses plus other goodies. I also took advantage of Music Room's teacher's discount to which they added another 10% off. Superb value and the choir love it.

        I purchased Volumes 1 and 2 of English Church Music. It is beneficial to have so much Anglican choral music right at hand.
        I would like to be able to purchase choral music digitally since I live in the USA.
