    All the best,

    That descant is really neat, even though it’s simple. I like it.

    Very nice.
    The simplified Anglican chant is sung right well and is really good.
    (I don't know if AC was on your mind when writing this - maybe not. There are some simplified chants in The Hymnal 1982 that are quite similar to yours.
    Also! You should be proud of your choir - very nice singing.

    (I detected but one out standing fault - Namely accomplished by the cantor - - -
    namely, why that consistent singing of 'Lord' in the responsory as if it had at least two extended syllables, eg. Law---rrrd. Some little work would fix this 'R's should always be suppressed [unless one is mimicking some America dialect[)

    The cantor (yours truly) is guilty as charged. Being American, however, there's little doubt some bad habits have crept in lol!

    You ain't heard nothin' until you hear "Bill" pronounced as three syllables ("Bee-ih-ul") in a low Tidewater drawl.

  • Liam,

    Tidewater Virginia, or further down the coast?

    (I used to live in North Carolina, so....)
