The Preces and Responses

for the 1972 Edington Festival of Music with the Liturgy
author of text

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.

Les Preces et Responses sont de Philip Radcliffe, un éminent musicologue qui fut longtemps chargé de cours au King’s College de Cambridge et maître assistant en musique à l’université. Originellement composées pour le Festival of Music within the Liturgy organisé chaque année à Edington (Wiltshire), ces pièces, douces et impressionnantes, dégagent beaucoup de chaleur et de lyrisme. Le Notre Père (Lord’s Prayer) est un traitement particulièrement beau et expressif du célèbre texte.

Die Preces und Responses sind von Philip Radcliffe, einem angesehenen Musikwissenschaftler, der lange als Fellow of King’s College, Cambridge sowie als Musikdozent an der Universität tätig war. Ursprünglich entstanden sie für das alljährliche Musikfestival innerhalb der Liturgie in Edington in Wiltshire und sind sanfte, lyrische und wirkungsvolle Vertonungen, die besondere Wärme ausstrahlen. Die vertrauten Worte des Vaterunser sind in besonders schöner und ausdrucksvoller Weise vertont.
