This unique anthology features twenty anthems and canticles from this particularly fruitful era of the British choral heritage. Barry Rose has selected and edited a set of pieces by composers including Goss, Mendelssohn, Stanford and Sullivan, as well as several lesser-known composers of the period. This book is a rich resource, suitable for services or concerts of all kinds. The huge variety of music on offer includes easily accessible anthems with simple four-part harmonies and organ, or more complex and sonorous music for eight-part choirs.
