Preces and Responses (pdf)


My setting of the Preces and Responses is a simple, thematic affair with the opening material setting the tone for the whole work. The Lord’s Prayer brings together all the thematic material as well as introducing new material that is expanded upon the subsequent responses. The work is intended to be a fresh take on the well-worn Anglican verse, though within the tradition rather than working against it.
