Please forgive me if this sort of post is not appropriate to this forum: it seems the speediest way to put the word out.

I am running a community choir which specializes in sacred choral music, most easily described as “classical.” Part of this choir is a children’s component, which enjoys an informal relationship with a Continuing Anglican church. They are trained as I used to train church choirs (modeled after the RSCM Chorister Training Scheme), with hymns and especially plainsong as a relatively small, but essential part of the regimen.

What I am hoping to find are 12-24 copies, in reasonably good condition, of The English Gradual, Part II – The Proper, ed. Francis Burgess. These are small soft-cover books, approx. 4x6 inches, and are, to the best of my knowledge, out of print. To any church using one of the newer lectionaries, they are really of no use at all. I suspect that there may be copies gathering dust in the back of any number of music cupboards or filing cabinets somewhere or other. However, they would be a godsend to us, as we are firmly entrenched in the lectionary of the Book of Common Prayer/English Missal, with which they are compatible.

We do not have much of a budget, but would certainly be willing to pay shipping, plus whatever they are worth to you.

If there are any Canadians on the list, I would also be delighted to take any copies of the 1939 Book of Common Praise off your hands (music edition).

If you think you might be able to help us, please reply to wmcarton@lycos.com off-list. Many thanks.

William McArton.
