Household names such as Byrd, Purcell, Wesley, Stanford and Britten are interspersed with less familiar figures such as lay vicars or lay clerks from the cathedral and collegiate foundations, or faithful but unremembered parish organists. The contributions of the almost 3,000 featured composers<-->from ancient times to the present<-->range from ambitious anthems to humble hymn tunes or responses. Each alphabetical entry includes a brief biography as well as notes on music and references to composers' secular works. Distributed by Books International.
