    Programme Note

    Volume 14: Sacred Music, Part II – Nine Anthems with Strings (New edition, 2003)

    Originally edited by Harry Wooldridge and Godfrey Arkwright (1904). Lionel Pike’s new edition takes account of a plethora of manuscript sources which were unknown or unavailable to the original editors, and includes not only the original symphony-anthem version of It is a good thing to give thanks and of Rejoice in the Lord alway but also very early arrangements of both pieces for performance without strings.

    Instrumental parts for individual anthems are available for purchase from the publisher
