I am seeking the sheet music for Evensong and Benediction in Anglican Chant. This should include the canticles as well. If my request is already on a CD or cassette, I would also be interested in purchasing it. If Benediction is not available in Anglican chant, I take only Evensong. If a catalog is available, please advise.

The RSCM is probably your best resource. You can buy from their shop ( www.rscm.com/shop ) Psalters with Anglican Chant and separate Chant books.

Not sure about benediction though - I can't say I've ever heard it done to Anglican Chant as it is considered a Roman service and would be sung to a "plainsong-esque" chant.

John.

The traditional Benediction hymns (O saluataris / O saving Victim, and Tantum Ergo / Therefore we before him bending) and and 87.87.87 - tunes respectively. Tantum ergo has a lovely plainchant melody (Pange Lingua) which is in most RC hymnbooks, and with slight melodic variation in the opening phrase, in Anglican books.

I'm sure you have local churches - All Saints. Margaret Street, etc., that probably do Sunday Evensong & Benediction who would be of help there.

I'd like to recommend contacting Fr. Steven Gerth, sgerth@stmvnyc.org Rector of St. Mary the Virgin, NYC where Evensong and Benediction(frequently Solemn) is offered on Feastdays and Sundays of the Choral year. Financial constraints in recent years ruled out the Choir's presence, except on major Feastdays, so Psalms and Canticles are chanted to the proper Gregorian tones. As noted above, the Pange Lingua melody is widely known and the last 2 verses of Aquinas' hymn are the Tantum Ergo. A Mozarabic Chant is used for the O Salutaris. The chanted Laudate Dominum with the Adoremus in Aeternum(English, of course) conclude the celebration.

The unaccompanied antiphonal chant really sounds monastic though only.
a few dozen may be present and singing. Service leaflets have the Psalms pointed and the tones and hymns printed. SMV takes Liturgy very seriously.
