Aye, very fine indeed. I particularly enjoyed the Purcell anthem.

As a fan of S.S. Wesley, the hymn Harewood was nice to hear. I've always been curious why Wesley's tune Alleluia is not in NEH. Several other hymnals I own have it... Confused

Perhaps because, as a Welshman, RVW preferred the Pritchard tune, Hyfrydol (commonly called Hydrofoil by English choirs) Evil or Very Mad

Lance,

In line with the above, I just ran across this the other day:

Dudley Moore doing a parody of Peter Pears. Try to keep a straight face... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Well I heard it too. Any info on this? Whatever, Truro is a magnificent cathedral -I attended CE there several years ago- and it was a pleasure to hear this latest broadcast. Enjoyed the William Harris compositions- didn't wickedchorister proclaim Faire as the Heaven as one of her favs? She should have heard these others...

Did anyone click on the youtube link from my previous post? (I'm hoping Lance will have.) Okay, I'm too young to have heard Peter Pears live, but Dudley Moore's parody had every nuance of Pears's vocal production down to a farthing. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Jason, you are a legend finding this!
I've had a recording of Dudley Moore doing this parody, but never seen it "live" until now. As you point out, it is Pears to perfection. If you want Pears at his best, listen to the recording he made with Britten of The War Requiem.

By the way Jason, the other Moore piece I emailed you about is also available on Youtube, but modesty prevents me from posting the link!

Now my thoughts on today's Evensong. What more can one say about an Evensong filled with music by William Harris. It was a sheer delight. The boys effortlessly handled the music with aplomb!

I couldn't find it on YouTube, so why not post it? Just because the link is there doesn't require everybody to click on it! Wink Better yet, post it in the "Chatter" section.

Probably, but I don't think Admin/John is that much of a prig. Laughing
Do you think he was watched the Dudley Moore parody?

The BBC really had me hoodwinked this week.Here I was thinking that we would get something from King's that we hadn't heard before. To add to my annoyance, the program was nearly 4 minutes late in starting. Evil or Very Mad
The service is the one which is already available on the old 1955 Argo recording "Evensong"(Argo RG-99) and I'm sure some of our readers have a copy of this in their archives. Here I was thinking that we would get something that we hadn't heard. To add to my annoyance, the program was nearly 4 minutes late in starting.
Having whinged all this, I must say it was lovely to re-hear this service without the crackles and pops of old vinyl. And it was wonderful to have The General Confession at the start of the service. The additional tracks by Howells and Wesley after Evensong to fill in the hour were very worthwhile.

Lance,

I really enjoyed this broadcast, not having ever heard the original LP. What a feast. But EEK Surprised 1955? That was the year my mum was born!

If you still have the LP, could you possibly email me the musical selections? No rush, but much appreciated!

Cheers,
Jason

Jason, I'll post them to you as mp3 files. Do you want the responses as well as the major works?
