Hello [community profile] choralmusic!

On Maundy Thursday I sang the Bairstow Lamentations for the first time, which is utterly fabulous, especially for tenors, who get a proper fortissimo top G. Happy tenor is happy.

(My current choir is the first one I've sung in that's used the "Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs" Oxford book, too.)

Anyway, I then decided that I needed to get my hands on a recording of it, and I found this York Minster CD of Bairstow's works on iTunes. (link, £7.99 on UK store)

In addition to the lovely Lamentations, it has the stonkingly good "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence" that I sang back at uni and the Mag & Nunc in D.

A bargain price for very well sung British choral music of a sort of Stanford/Parry/V-W sort of aesthetic.
