Anyone catch the latest CE on Radio 3?

I quite enjoyed it. The introit and anthem were wonderful as was the hymn, Coe Fen , a particular favourite. I was a bit surprised that one of Charles Wood's many settings of the canticles (I have recordings of seven of them) was not used.

And may we wish that Priory will continue their series of Charles Wood's anthems? Only two volumes so far. Let us have more.

Cheers,
Jason

This may have been a good opportunity to air one of Wood's canticle settings but I really enjoyed Stanford's setting for double chorus of the Magnificat (in Latin). Correct me if I am wrong, but this setting never made it on to the Priory series of Mag.& Nunc. recordings, so it was quite a revelation to hear it Very Happy Very Happy

Yes, indeed, Lance. I quite enjoyed it! It was certainly an "RC" version of CE -and as such remains out of my realm- but fine music making all around.

The irony is that CR is a "version" of what you heard yesterday rather than the other way round! Evensong is an amalgam of the offices of Vespers and Compline.

Thanks, Andrew, I'm certainly aware of that having studied the English Church and its music at university. But being an admitted traditional Anglican... guilty as charged. Very Happy

My apologies for being intellectually sloppy.

I was really taken by the Oratory's performance of Monteverdi - Adoramus te Christe. I even ran off a free copy for myself to sing along (from www.cpdl.org ) I've searched the internet to find a good recording of this piece but all I can find of any note is the Hyperion disc from their Monteverdi series (vol.4 , The Kings Consort Choir) and I'd like to know if you guys know of this recording, or any other which has the quality and ambience of the Oratory choir. They dont appear to have made a commercial recording of this work. Sad
Thanks,
Lance

Another enjoyable CE from Derby, a parish church cathedral I have yet to vist.

The final hymn "There's a wideness in God's mercy" was sung to a favourite tune of mine, Corvedale . It was written for St. Paul's, but alas is not in NEH. Perhaps it is too new? NEH uses the tune Cross of Jesus . One American hymnal I consulted has the words to a tune called Slingsby , otherwise unkown to me.

The closing voluntary, Rhapsody on a Ground by Heathcote Statham should be better known. There is a fine recording from Norwich Cathedral on Regent Records with David Dunnett.

Anyone know whether the Derby Girls' Choir joined forces with the Men and Boys for this Evensong?
Just another example of a Cathedral having a really poor web site with respect to their music, only showing service times and type of service. Evil or Very Mad

That was a wonderful service from an historical viewpoint. The address by Revd. Andrew Walters said it all! It's a tragedy that such a fine choral foundation as St.Michael's Tenbury had to close in 1985. Have a look at this link and see the famous names of the Wardens and Fellows of the College. The plaque used to hang in the dining hall but is now in the chapel.

If you wish just to hear the address again it is downloadable from this site, http://www.smcsociety.co.uk/music.html together with a lot of other musical goodies from the St.Michael's archives.

The old Argo recording made in the late 60's of the choir under Lucian Nethsingha will always remain one of my all time treasured discs

I finally found the time to listen to the latest CE. Thanks, Lance, for your contribution- as always.

It is interesting what we gain from these broadcasts. The highlight for me was the Office Hymn: Neander . (NEH #351) Definitely one of the great Lutheran hymns. I've always loved it.

Quite a treat from the Beeb this week with CE, not only giving us some wonderful singing from the Pilgrim Consort but also a bonus video of them performing a motet by Pablo Casals. For those of you who enjoyed the works from the Llibre Vermell, I can heartily recommend a CD by Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XX "Llibre Vermell de Montserrat" on Virgin Edition 7243 5 61174 2 6 Very Happy

PS The forum is a bit quiet this week Shocked
