The Novello Book of Classic Anthems

  • £12.99


The collection includes miniature gems, including Edward Elgar#s Ave verum corpus, Henry Purcell#s Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts, and Thomas Attwood#s Come, Holy Ghost, and established choral favourites such as Handel#s Hallelujah Chorus, Henry Balfour Gardiner#s Evening Hymn and Samuel Sebastian Wesley#s Blessed be the God and Father. It also covers a number of dramatic extended anthems, suitable for both church choirs and choral societies, such as Edward Naylor#s Vox dicentis: clama, John Stainer#s I saw the Lord and Wesley#s Ascribe unto the Lord, and twentieth-century classics such as William Harris#s Bring us, O Lord God, Patrick Hadley#s My beloved spake, and Edgar Bainton#s And I saw a new heaven. All the pieces have been re-engraved and some, such as Haydn#s The heavens are telling and Brahms#s How lovely are thy dwellings, have newly arranged accompaniments, specifically designed for the Organ. This collection of nineteen anthems covers a wide range of moods and festivals, and offers a delightful concert programme in itself, as well as an essential addition to any choir#s library.
