SATB choir with some divisi and cantor, a cappella - Medium
Composed by David Ashley White (1944-). Cathedral. Choral, Evensong. Choral octavo. Published by Paraclete Press (PL.9631).

Item Number: PL.9631

This setting of the Preces and Responses continues in the great tradition of English cathedral music. The lyric flow of the choral writing, reminiscent of Howells, is combined with a more contemporary harmonic and rhythmic style. The centerpiece of the work is an extended setting of The Lord's Prayer, which gradually expands from the opening unison to a sonorous harmonization of the phrase "and lead us not into temptation." These Preces and Responses should find a favored place in the repertoire of music for Evensong.
