        Etchingham GB
        A Beautiful arrangement, but the parts do sub-divide, making it not easy for small groups. Otherwise heartily recommended.
        Too much sub-division of parts. Not really possible for small groups.

        Buckingham GB
        A modern anthem that sounds more difficult than t is and which is not beyond the capabilities of a good Parish Choir.
        Whitbourn's idiom is a touch conservative and backward looking.
