        My choir is just beginning to learn this to be performed we think in October. Lovely music - always a nice "tune" for the altos!

        Everything is there. Being paperback it's lighter weight than many scores
        Separation of parts into staves is inconsistent: for the majority of the book, there isn't a separate stave for each vocal part. In some places this is because everyone is singing in unison, but there are many places where separate stave for the different vocal parts would have been useful. In addition, particularly at points where the parts are jumbled together rather than separated out, the English translation is under the Latin, between the staves - this means that Tenors and Basses singing from the lower stave have to work hard not to automatically read the English (if they are meant to be singing Latin), and vice versa for Sops and Altos. Vast swathes of Kyrie Eleison have no English translation underneath giving no indication of how one might sing in English, though this might be deliberate.

        The most beautiful melodies just come out of nowhere ... and excellent - sometimes easy and others more taxing - harmonies thrill the musical ear. Movements like 'Out of the Deep' and 'Agnus Dei' move from one thrilling or deeply emotional phrase to the other, enthralling the listener. The almost haunting use of the insistent timpani in the Agnus Dei is one of the magic moments in all music of its type. Superb - easy to sing - and most rewarding.

        Very attractive cover for this music. The score is nicely spaced and clear to read.

        A clear and well printed version for piano reduction and voice with both Latin and English text. Easy to use if practicing at home.
