Familiar and long-established works are represented alongside many lesser-known and more recent works by composers such as Douglas Guest, Philip Rose and Ralph Allwood. Many of the pieces are ideal as Introits and Anthems for general church use, whilst other have a more specific intended function within the liturgical calendar. However, all are well suited to both devotional and concert performance.
The works here are short, ranging from straight-forward to technically challenging and more exciting. As a whole, the collection features an overwhelming number of choices for choirs of all different sizes and abilities.SonglistAlmighty And Everlasting God [Gibbons, Orlando]Ave Verum Corpus K.618 [Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus]Cantate Domino [Pitoni, Guiseppi Ottavio]Crucifixus [Lotti, Antonio]Dominus Illuminatio [Hill, David]For The Fallen [Guest, Douglas]God So Loved The World (The Crucifixion) [Stainer, John]I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes [Ledger, Philip]If Ye Love Me Keep My Commandments [Tallis, Thomas]Jesu Dulcis Memoria [Victoria, Tomas Luis De]Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring (Cantata BWV 147) [Bach, Johann Sebastian]Lead me, Lord [Wesley, Samuel Sebastian]Litany To The Holy Spirit [Hurford, Peter]Locus Iste [Bruckner, Anton]Long Since In Egypt's Plenteous Land [Parry, Charles Hubert]O Come, Ye Servants Of The Lord [Tye, Christopher]O Taste And See [Vaughan Williams, Ralph]Oculi Omnium [Wood, Charles]Sanctus [Alcock, Walter]Thou knowest, Lord [Purcell, Henry]Three Introits [Rose, Bernard]View Me, Lord [Lloyd, Richard]
