Anglican Communion services/Mass settings
Date: November 15, 2012
As the Organist/Choirmaster of a fairly large but rather new metropolitan Anglican Church using the 1928 Prayer Book I am always on the lookout for new settings of the Anglican/Episcopal communion liturgy. We always use the Willan "Magdalena" setting but have also, in the past, used the Schubert or Merbecke settings. I am also familiar with the services in the 1940 hymnal and the more common settings by Stanford, Darke, Sumsion, etc. We desire that the congregation participate fully and not for the choir to sing the service for everyone so many of the more elaborate or extended settings are probably not that suitable for us. With that in mind, do any other English language shorter service settings suitable for congregational use come to mind by anyone out there? Many thanks for any suggestions anyone might have.
