9780193531093: The New Church Anthem Book: One Hundred Anthems

A definitive collection of 100 anthems from Tudor times to the present, this book includes favorites as well as lesser-known pieces. The anthems were selected for their practical usefulness for church choirs today, bearing in mind the needs of smaller choirs: the anthems are mostly for SATB with or without keyboard accompaniments.

About the Author:

Lionel Dakers was born in Rochester, Kent, in 1924, and died in 2003. He was Director of the Royal School of Church Music from 1972 until 1989 and enjoyed an international reputation as an ambassador for excellence in church music. He was also for more than 30 years an examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music. He was awarded a Lambeth Doctorate in Music in 1979, became a Fellow of the Royal College of Music in 1980 and was appointed CBE in 1983.

Review:

'A classic of its type, a model of compositional excellence, a good buy, and a treasury of important repertoire for fledgling choral libraries.' Worship (USA)

'This well-chosen and well-presented collection of anthems must be an investment to be seriously considered.' The Bulletin of the Church Music Society of the Methodist Church (USA)

`In short, The New Church Anthem Book is a resource that a choir can use Sunday after Sunday throughout the year.' Choral Journal

'The new book is beautifully produced and clearly printed, with sensible accompaniments and authoritative editing.' Martin Neary, Church Times

`The printing and editing are up to Oxford's usual high standards, and the volume would stand up to heavy repeated use. It is also very user-friendly . . . It is of course an excellent general collection for choirs and a superb reference book for directors.' USA Association of Anglican
Musicians' Journal

`A beautiful book of some 578 pages which represents a valuable reference source for church musicians . . . The presentation of individual anthems is exemplary.' Choral Guild Letters

'Having all of these under one cover strikes me as a fine thing, especially when I consider how often these staple anthems become so worn and tattered over the years; this volume offers a one-time replacement of them in uniform editions with Oxford's high standards of clear music production .
. . Dakers and Oxford University Press deserve our great thanks and high praise for this magnificently conceived and usefully produced collection.' The Journal of the Association of Anglian Musicians (USA)

`Handsomely hard-bound and beautifully printed on acid-free paper . . . Its presentation and editorial practice are exemplary. I can't think of an organist or choir director who would not fall in love with it at first sight and want to own it.' Victorian Organ Journal

`This is a wonderful compilation of materials . . . Highly recommended to those choirs wanting to build an immediate repertoire of standards and useful anthems . . . These settings will carry most choirs through several years of material. Excellent!' Diapason
