Mass for the Children - Sanctus & Benedictus

*shakes dust*

This has been in my head for the past few days, not because I didn't hear it before hand, but at least in part because I heard the most terrifying Sanctus on Sunday, and this is... not.

Title: John Rutter, Mass for the Children - Sanctus & Benedictus
Performer(s): Clare College Choir, Cambridge, Farnham Youth Choir
Background: John Rutter's Mass for the children is not an older setting; on the contrary it's from 2002. Being a Naxos CD it was a random [read: cheap] pick when Tower Records was closing down, and is probably the most listened CD of the 20 or so we bought.  This is my favorite section, because of the beauty of the harmony in the Benedictus, particularly in the duet. Notes from the composer
Nature of recording: Adult and Children choirs, with chamber orchestra.
Text: Ye old Missa brevis - slightly different word order.  
   Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, -    "Holy, holy, holy,"
    Dominus Deus Sabaoth; - "Lord God of Hosts;"
    pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua. - "Heaven and earth are full of your glory."
   Hosanna in excelsis. - "Hosanna in the highest".

    Benedictus, qui venit in nomine Domini.- "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."
    Hosanna in excelsis. - "Hosanna in the highest".
Format: mp3 :)
