The collection includes miniature gems, including Edward Elgar’s Ave verum corpus , Henry Purcell’s Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts , and Thomas Attwood’s Come, Holy Ghost , and established choral favourites such as Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus , Henry Balfour Gardiner’s Evening Hymn and Samuel Sebastian Wesley’s Blessed be the God and Father . It also covers a number of dramatic extended anthems, suitable for both church choirs and choral societies, such as Edward Naylor’s Vox dicentis: clama , John Stainer’s I saw the Lord and Wesley’s Ascribe unto the Lord , and twentieth-century classics such as William Harris’s Bring us, O Lord God , Patrick Hadley’s My beloved spake , and Edgar Bainton’s And I saw a new heaven . All the pieces have been re-engraved and some, such as Haydn’s The heavens are telling and Brahms’s How lovely are thy dwellings , have newly arranged accompaniments, specifically designed for the Organ. This collection of nineteen anthems covers a wide range of moods and festivals, and offers a delightful concert programme in itself, as well as an essential addition to any choir’s library.
