Work Overview

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 Norwich Cathedrals.
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'.
