Music for a Country ChurchA country church in summer, surrounded by a lovely church yard - an atmosphere for contemplation and quiet thought. Quiet songs and slow themes create an opportunity for reflection and for time to stand still for just a moment1 Abide with me WH Monk2 Jesu joy of man's desiring JS Bach3 The old rugged cross G Bennard 4 All in the April evening Roberton5 Largo from Xerses GF Handel6 Nimrod E Elgar7 Sheep may safely graze JS Bach8 The rosary E Nevin9 The lost chord A Sullivan10 Fantasia on 'Greensleeves' R Vaughan Williams11 Nearer my God, to Thee L Mason12 Adagio S Barber 13 In the gloaming AF Harrison14 Liebestraum No 3 F Liszt15 A perfect day C Jacobs-Bond16 To a wild rose E MacDowell17 Now the day is over S Baring-GouldThe Victoria Singers, directed by Sarah Tenant-Flowers, accompanied by Paul AyresSolo organ and piano music played by Martin SouterCCL CDG 1050This compilation P & C 2003 Classical Communications LtdMade in Great BritainFor further details of The Gift of MusicPlease contact Classical CommunicationsWorton, Oxfordshire, OX29 4SZTel +44 (0) 1865 882920E-mail firstname.lastname@example.orgInside book:Freshly-mown grass, the soothing hum of evening insects, a meandering path by hedges and yew trees: a summer churchyard is a place for contemplation and quiet thought. Perhaps the old, oak door is ajar, and strains of pleasant music can be heard from within the old church - a concert of music for a quiet time, slightly sentimental, full of emotion, but soothing nonetheless. Here is a collection of old favourites, hymn tunes half-remembered, and well-known music by great composers in a programme designed for memories and thoughts of times past, and as a way to gather strength for times future. Nostalgia, sentiment and passion abound in a programme for reflection and thought, with the atmosphere of a country church. The curfew tolls the knell of parting day; The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea; The ploughman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me. Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight, And all the air a solemn stillness holds, Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight, And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds; Save that, from yonder ivy-mantled tower, The moping owl does to the moon complain Of such as, wandering near her secret bower, Molest her ancient solitary reign. Thomas Grey: Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard (extract)Stands the church clock at ten to three?And is there honey still for tea?Rupert Brook: 'The Old Vicarage', Grantchester (extract)
