    O Come All Ye Faithful

    Hi all

    Has anyone got David Willcocks' harmonisation of yea lord we greet thee verse 7 of adeste fideles? I heard the one on youtube (see below) and its different to the carols for choirs version - in terms of the pedal point on o come let us adore him etc which isnt there in carols for choirs - has anyone got the one in the attached vid? Can anyone send me a pdf scanned score or something?

    thanks

    I am sure you can buy a copy of this choir piece as I am sure it is not in public domain yet.. Perhaps email the poster of the video. Cheet out Sheetmusic plus, IMSLP or online retailer..

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    It is available in 100 Carols for Choirs. I cannot scan it - this would infringe the copyright.

    The only difference, as far as I can recall, is the dominant pedal (in octaves), commencing at the antepenultimate line*. The rest is, I am fairly sure, the same. I shall have a look when I go to the Minster later.


    An even better version was that which was (or may have been) written by Stephen Layton, when he was the Senior Organ Scholar at King's. The choir finished the piece in the normal manner but then, as they processed out through the choir screen, Stephen played an organ only version, which involved Tuba fanfares alternating with full G.O. and Swell for the last few lines. It was extremely effective - and one of the few times I have actually liked the Tuba sound at King's. Unfortunately it exists only in my memory - and on an old PAL videocassette, somewhere in my study....



    * Or the fourth line from the end, if you list the final 'Christ the Lord' as a separate line in the text.

    If I can find the video (I only use DVDs or Blu-Rays these days), probably the best thing is for me to write it down from the recording. However, I should then need to contact Stephen Cleobury to ask his permission to use it publicly. Although I have never heard it anywhere else (nor seen it in print), I would not wish to release it until I have his permission. I should also need to ask him who actually wrote it.

    This may take me a couple of weeks or so to achieve, so I cannot promise anything as yet.

    Neither did I. Perhaps our original e-mails (or the replies) went astray.

    User "greatbigge" hasn't logged in since Dec 1st. May be the reason for no replies yet

    Indeed - but presumably he would still receive notification of PMs via e-mail?

    Sean,

    He should be able to ... that account is set up to receive email notifications when a PM is in their Inbox

    But ... if their email addy has changed since joining, then there is no way to forward it unless h/she notifies us and we change it manually in their profile.
