Vater unser in Himmelreich BWV 683  Bach

Responses  Byrd
Psalm 119 vv.1-32   Atkins, Hayes
Job 1 vv.6-22
Deutsches Magnificat   Schütz
Luke 21 v.34 - 22 v.6
Nunc Dimittis quarti toni   Palestrina
Denn alles Fleisch German Requiem  Brahms
Duetto II BWV 803  Bach

Tom Etheridge & Richard Gowers  Organ Scholars
Stephen Cleobury  Director of Music

The Chaplain, The Reverend Andrew Hammond, said: ‘It’s very good to see the BBC rising to the challenge that we’ve already been facing for some weeks: the loss of the grand organ. This service sees both the organ scholars in fine and versatile action on chamber organ and piano: in the latter case, imitating a full symphony orchestra!’
