Hmmm - one favourite? I can only give several:
    Stanford - For Lo, I raise up
    Bairstow - Lord, thou hast been our refuge
    Bainton - And I saw a new Heaven
    Elgar - Give unto the Lord
    Bairstow - Let all mortal flesh keep silence
    S S Wesley - Blessed be the God and Father

And that's just the "big" ones. There are some lovely small anthems, like:
    Tallis - O nata lux
    Purcell - Thou knowest Lord (Z58)

John.

No favorites but two that I'd love to perform (and haven't....can you believe it!) are In exitu Israel (S.Wesley) and The Wilderness (S.S.Wesley)

Well I didnt think it was possible to have just a favourite one, until I sang Harris, Faire is the heaven the other day. For any of you who dont know it, its amazing!

Yeah, Faire is the heaven is pretty nifty stuff. And how could I forget In exitu Israel !

If anyone on this forum has a favourite Rutter, they're not coming forth.

I have to admit I'm confused by the appearance of Wesley Blessed by the God and Father on this thread!! (Not to mention RUTTER!!)

I'm managing so far, and it doesn't seem to be too much of a strain. Does it have redeeming qualities?

Again, tricky.

Some possibilties:

R V Williams - Lord, thou hast been our refugee
Bairstow - Let all mortal

Finzi's "Lo, the full final" - must get credit for the bizarre presence of a Pelican!
