The Preces and Responses
The Preces and Responses are by Philip Radcliffe, a distinguished musicologist who for many years was a Fellow of King’s College, Cambridge, and lecturer in music at the university. Originally composed for the annual Festival of Music within the Liturgy at Edington, Wiltshire, these are a gentle and effective setting of great warmth and lyricism. The Lord’s Prayer is a particularly beautiful and expressive treatment of these familiar words.
