Everything from plainchant to Graham Kendrick, which I like to think is the way it should be.
On the way we had two very contrasting choral pieces, in Brahms's gentle motet for four women’s voices, and Parry’s uplifting setting of Ps 121(122), which was also today’s responsorial psalm. At just fourteen voices today, we sang the Parry with one or two to a part, but I thought it worked extremely convincingly on this reduced scale.
