OUP Hymn settings... again!

Recommended Posts

Just been looking at RSCM's Sunday by Sunday list for next Sunday and the opportunity arises to use several books for pre and mid-service usage:

Lent and Passiontide (Vol 3) for David Blackwell's lovely little Cantilena based on A New Commandment, and Alan Bullard's superb Prelude on Ubi Caritas - though he'll have to beat off Denis Bédard's variations to claim the prize.

Pentecost and Trinity (Vol 5) yields up Paul Leddington-Wright's Shipston - Fugatives on the run. (His Engleberg in Autumn Festivals (Vol 6) is delicious, by the way.)

And then there is a Meditation on Pange Lingua by Richard Jeffrey-Gray in the latest volume, Holy Communion (Vol 7).

Volume 6 - Autumn Festivals - has come into its own several times recently, but I rate very strongly David Blackwell's Song on Thaxted for Remembrance Sunday, though, again, that faces strong competition from Charles Callahan's setting and also June Nixon's in Hymns Amazing.
