The Preces and Responses
The Preces and Responses are by Bernard Rose, who for many years was Informator choristarum at Magdalen College, Oxford. In addition to his influential work as a choir trainer, he was a scholar and editor of Tudor church music. His tuneful and attractive responses are a mainstay of the Anglican choral repertory. The treble line of the choral response ‘And make thy chosen people joyful’ quotes the chimes of the Magdalen College clock.
