handsoff Posted July 13, 2014 Share Posted July 13, 2014 Not organ music but of interest to me. I did a spot of deputising this morning and in addition to the 5 hymns that I was expecting to play there was also the Mass of St Thomas by David Thorne. One of the choir said at 09.05, with an 09.15 start, "Oh and here's the mass setting, we do the Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus and the Agnus Dei." OK, no problem sight reading it, the choir obviously knew it inside out and backwards and I found it was quite enjoyable to play on the unusually bright 9 stop 2m +p Hewins organ. The questions; is it a well-known setting and is it performed much? I've never met it before... Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
