Lance,

Thanks for joining in on this thread before I get eaten alive! I rather liked the Sumsion They that go down ... I actually prefer it to the men and boys of St. Paul's or Worcester. (Are you reading this, wickedchorister? Very Happy )

Well, that makes it all alright then. I don't know the recording - I normally regard John Scott as a paragon of tasteful musicality, but yes, that's what I'm referring to on the Naxos disc, and I'm not going to revise my opinion just because someone who's normally good did it in 1978...
I'll search out the John's recording, and see if it's good enough to make me reconsider.

Welldone Jason Evans! I can tell there's a feminist in you just waiting to be released!

I find nothing at all tasteless in this rendition of Psalm 150. If you are referring to the use of the Cymbelstern in the Amen, let me remind you that in their recording "Psalms of Consolation and Hope" (1978), St. John's College, Cambridge under George Guest used it for the whole of the last verse "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord". I suggest, Colin, that you have a listen to this before you make such an outrageous comment. Evil or Very Mad
"Springs" made mention of this old recording 4 posts ago in this thread, and I'm sure he'll back me up.
If it's not the Cymbelstern that bothers you Colin, then perhaps you'd like to elaborate.

Lance


Only just looked at this topic.

I may have mentioned elsewhere (or perhaps it was on another forum) that Malcolm Archer, when Assistant at Norwich, once used the Cymbelstern in Ps16 v.7

And I never hear /read Ps 45 now without thinking of Wickedchorister!
