Mass in G Minor for Soli (S.A.T.B.) and Double Chorus (Curwen Edition)
The Mass in G minor of 1922 has been described as the vocal equivalent of the great Tallis Fantasia -- double choir (double string orchestra), four soloists (string quartet) -- and the methods of the Elizabeth fantasy are employed, for instance the use of a motif, always slightly varied, in the different voice parts, thereby giving a unity to the whole colloquy. Strangely, though its mastery is indisputable and its authorship undeniable, the Mass is in some respects the most anonymous of Vaughan Williams’s works. This is as it should be. He wrote it for liturgical use, the music being subservient to religious ceremony. There is none of the elaborate augmentation of the great Masses of Bach, Beethoven and Berlioz, nor indeed is there the intellectual power of Byrd. Most of Vaughan Williams’s religious music is of an emotional power which would have been out of place in a setting of the Ordinary. It should not be thought, however, that there is anything austere about this Mass. Its richness is a by-product of the glowing counterpoint as well as being a fundamental of Vaughan Williams’s approach to such a task. The influences of Debussy, and therefore of Mussorgsky, can still be discerned in the Mass, for there is something of Pelléas et Mélisande there. The anonymous bon mot about ‘L’Après-Midi d’un Vaughan’ was perceptive as well as witty. The Mass is also indicative of the subtle and deep change which had been wrought by his experiences since 1914 in Vaughan Williams’s nationalism. Like the Tallis Fantasia, the Mass was conceived in terms of the acoustics of a cathedral or church and, unlike the Fantasia, it does not transplant well to a concert-hall. Its dedicatees, Holst and his Whitsuntide Singers, performed it whenever possible in church or cathedral, Thaxted, Chichester, and once at Canterbury whence Holst wrote to Adeline Vaughan Williams that he had discovered that it might have been ‘written for this cathedral’.

Others are arrangements, adaptations or longer pieces, abridged to bring them into the scope of a useable anthem, including choral arrangements of Handel’s Largo, the Ave Marias by Schubert and by Bach and Gounod, and Franck’s Panis Angelicus amongst many others.

The Complete Cantatas (Study Scores)
Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750). No group of works in Johann Sebastian Bachs output is as wide-ranging as the cantatas. This is hardly surprising considering that for over five years Bach was required to compose a work, or at least re-work an existing one, for every Sunday and festival of the church year, as well as for numerous secular occasions such as council inaugurations, school and university celebrations and royal birthdays.Unfortunately, not all cantatas have survived. However, over 200 sacred and secular works exist and form a corpus of works suitable for all possible occasions. This rich musical heritage is still as relevant today as it was then. BŠrenreiterÔs unique edition, which encompasses more than 11,000 pages, includes all cantatas together with the motets, chorales and sacred songs in the Urtext of the New Bach Edition. As a special extra, the recently rediscovered aria Alles mit Gott und nichts ohn ihn is also included. Only available here is an additional volume with an introduction (German/English) by Christoph Wolff and an index.
