God be merciful unto us and bless us

The daily office lectionary for today includes Psalm 67. Thanks to The Topmost Apple, I was introduced to a spectacular offering of this psalm by the Westminster Abbey choir. I pray that we do not completely lose Anglican Chant as an art form. Sadly, it’s very, very rare to hear Anglican Chant sung well on this side of the Atlantic.

One would enjoy hearing beautifully sung Anglican Chant with a more modern psalter, however.

    Ahhh! That does a body good. My former parish in Rochester, NY, Christ Church downtown, does a mean Anglican chant.

    At St. Mark’s in Seattle, various settings are used, including Anglican chant, though I must confess that my favorite settings are those composed by Peter Hallock, Canon Precentor (emeritus), St. Mark’s (I’m certain that I am not biased in the least.).

    The choir of S. Stephen’s in Providence,does justice to the beauty of singing Anglican Chant.
