"Anglican Chant lovers... well, all sacred and classical music lovers, please get this ", concludes the previous reviewer, as if lovers of "all sacred and classical music" were to be captivated by Anglican Chant. Not so, I am afraid. This is the continuation of a recital of music settings of the Common Prayer Book from 1549, based on the English translation of the Psalter by Bishop Coverdale (first publication 1535). Coverdale was the author of the first English translation of the complete Bible, Old and New Testament. You will find all the details about this in my review of vol. I, The Psalms of David Vol. 1.

"Continuation", not just in the sense that vol. II follows vol. I, but also because vol. I was recorded in 1968 and vol. II in 1971. Are you telling me there is a vol. III? Well, yes, and here it is: Psalms of David, Vol. 3. Not for me, though, thanks but no thanks, the hour and forty minutes of homophonic chanting of the first two volumes, with bare organ accompaniment and a few exchanges between sections of the chorus (it was verse/boys and response/rest of chorus in vol. I), is plenty enough, and even much too much for my musical, if not liturgical needs. Music for the congregation may be great for the congregation, but as a purely musical experience it is an excrucianting bore. For those interested, apparently all three volumes have been reissued on two discs, The Psalms of David - Choir of King's College, Cambridge - Sir David Willcocks, Sir Philip Ledger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit From King's January 17, 2007
Verified Purchase
This is a must have in the Psalter Triligy. The sound is quite clear, the voices are trained to the uttermost, the organ's accompaniment is lovely. Anglican Chant lovers... well, all sacred and classical music lovers, please get this and parts I and III.
