(back) Subject: Washington Cathedral music From: <Mpmollerorgan@aol.com> Date: Sun, 16 Sep 2001 04:49:36 EDT   I heard a brief clip on the news and wondered if anyone can tell what = piece of music the choir was singing at the Washington Cathedral. I uploaded a real media clip of what is audible;   http://members.aol.com/churchdogue/broadcast.rm   It is 161K and plays in the Real Player or equiv.   Sounds like it has a lot of dynamic range, never heard this piece before = but I like it!

The tune is "Il est n=E9 le divin Enfant."     Roger Brown robrown@melbpc.org.au rbrown7@bigpond.net.au http://rogerbrown.tripod.com     ----- Original Message ----- From: <Mpmollerorgan@aol.com> To: <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, September 16, 2001 6:49 PM Subject: [Residence Organs] Washington Cathedral music     > I heard a brief clip on the news and wondered if anyone can tell what piece > of music the choir was singing at the Washington Cathedral.

The text is a splendid tear-jerker and a calm = expression of Christian hope by John Ellerton. "Now the laborer's task is o'er; / = Now the battle day is past; / Now upon the farther shore / Lands the voyager = at last. / Father, in thy gracious keeping / Leave we now thy servant sleeping." Etc., for 4 more verses. No. 224 in H40.   Roger Brown robrown@melbpc.org.au rbrown7@bigpond.net.au http://rogerbrown.tripod.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Roger Brown" <rbrown7@bigpond.net.au> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, September 16, 2001 7:13 PM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Washington Cathedral music     > Stumped me too although of course the tune is the well known "Il est = n=E9 le > divin Enfant" > > But from another list: > > "Father in thy gracious keeping" is an anthem for two-part treble choir > written by Richard Dirksen for a funeral in the > cathedral.

The tune is "Il est n=E9 le divin Enfant."   Thank you for checking, I guess then it was a sort of "in-house" composed=20 piece that one would never find at amazon.com on a CD or the like...     Randall http://members.aol.com/mpmollerorgan/
