      Belper GB Sing with Derventio choir
      Beautiful cover. Clear music and lyrics
      I thought I would get all of the choir and solo parts. I didn't realise the choral suite vocal score meant
      Angus dei
      Hymn before action, only.
      Wishing I had purchased the full score now.

      Useful smaller scale version of the Mass, which can be performed by a smaller choir accompanied by a church organ of reasonable quality (reeds need to be strong). Also less challenging in terms of vocal range than the full version. My chamber choir is really enjoying learning it, and its focus on dynamics and attack is hugely improving their performance skills.

      j'ai entendu cette oeuvre à l'occasion d'un concert d'une chorale anglaise. Comme elle m'a bcp plu, j'ai eu envie d'avoir la partition, pour mieux juger de sa difficulté. (je suis moi même chef de choeur)

      As expected. V useful.

      Excellent work by a contemporary composer. This was to be performed by a school choir, and I felt the selected pieces from the whole work were appropriate, worked well together as a complete performance and were very moving
