Faire is the heaven

composer
author of text

 
A thoroughbred of the Anglican tradition, William Henry Harris (1883–1973) held numerous prestigious positions as organist and educator, including appointments at New College, Oxford and St George’s Chapel, Windsor, where he meticulously organised numerous grand ceremonial services. Steeped in the Church of England’s music and worship, his anthem for double choir, Faire is the heaven, is unerring in its utterance, pacing and beauty. Although a perennial favourite, it requires a confident pair of choirmaster’s hands and singers of consummate ability to release its many glories.
