English Church Music Vol 1 - Anthems & Motets

Rejoice in the Lord alway
Jesu, the very thought of thee
Salvator mundi
O where shall wisdom be found?
Ave verum Corpus
Haec dies
Justorum animae
Sing joyfully
They are at rest
Lord, for thy tender mercy's sake
O clap your hands
O Lord, in thy wrath
These are they which follow the Lamb
Lord, let me know mine end
My song is love unknown
Faire is the heaven
O how glorious is the kingdom
Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks
Greater love hath no man
The souls of the righteous
Hear my prayer
Nolo mortem peccatoris
Vox dicentis: Clama
Ave Maria
Ascendit Deus
Hear my prayer, O Lord
I was glad when they said unto me
Let mine eyes run down with tears
Lord, how long wilt thou be angry?
Remember not, Lord, our offences
God so loved the world
I saw the Lord
Beati quorum via
Coelos ascendit hodie
How beauteous are their feet
I heard a voice from heaven
Justorum animae
If Ye Love Me
Loquebantur variis linguis
O Lord, give thy Holy Spirit
O nata lux de lumine
Dum transisset Sabbatum
When David heard
O how amiable
O taste and see
Set me as a seal upon thine heart
Blessed be the God and Father
Praise the Lord, O my soul
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Wash me throughly
O thou the central orb

Oxford Choral Classics: English Church Music assembles in two volumes around 100 of the finest examples of English sacred choral music of the past five centuries. The first volume, dedicated to anthems and motets, presents both favourite and lesser-known works, from the exceptional Renaissance polyphony of Taverner, Tallis, and Byrd, through the Restoration led by Purcell, to the glorious works of the great nineteenth- and twentieth-century composers, including Wesley, Elgar, Stanford, Vaughan Williams, and Howells. The volume contains a number of more substantial works, including Mendelssohn's Hear my prayer, Stainer's I saw the Lord, and Naylor's Vox dicentis: Clama, as well as a wonderful selection of shorter pieces, from Gibbons's O Lord, in thy wrath to Walton's Set me as a seal upon thine heart. With the second companion volume of canticles and responses, this bipartite collection presents a comprehensive survey of English sacred music at its best.
