These Responses were originally a setting of the English
Alternate Service Book (1980) text, written for the Trent College
Chapel Choir (Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, UK). They were then
adapted for the text from A Prayer Book for Australia (1995,
First Order) before appearing in this final form using the Book
of Common Prayer (1662) text. This edition includes a new setting
of the Lord's Prayer, and was written for The Cathedral Singers'
tour of UK cathedrals in 2008. They were sung in Lichfield and
The gentle mood of the setting is joyful. The Lord's Prayer is measured and respectful. The final Amen of the collects uses a slightly extended five-fold Amen. There is subsequently a setting of the 'final responses'.
