""Dying you destroyed..." chanted in English (melody adapted from Jesu Dulcis Memoria)"

That would be cool to hear. I used to use "Creator alme siderum" for the tune during Advent. I take it you repeat "Lord Jesus, come in glory" to fit the fourth line? That's what I did.

I love that you're using the Lacrimosa from Volfy's Requiem.

Sorry, that should've been directed at the author of that entry.
You crazy kids and you're team blogging....

Yup - we've been quite active here lately. ;-) That's Nick doing the Lacrymosa, another gorgeous Mozart piece I did in the high school chorus (the other was the Sanctus, also from his Requiem, and yes, Ma Beck, I did see the video of it at Cantius - quite nice!).

I thought I remembered seeing Call to Remembrance and other Farrant goodies in the Oxford Tudor Anthems book. It's a great resource, IMHO, and I've sung many an anthem out of that book.

They could very well be there. I'm actually using the Oxford octavo (from the Tudor Church Music series) that has Farrant's "Hide Not Thou Thy Face from Us" and "Call to Remembrance" in the same octavo.
