John Ward (d.1638)

EP1: Alleluia. I heard a voice

A large-scale verse anthem for SSAATTBB soli, SSAATB choir and organ, by the English madrigalist and consort-music composer John Ward (1590-1638), reconstructed by Ian Payne. It is musically related to the famous setting of the same Revelation text, by Thomas Weelkes. (Note that although the chorus is in five-parts (SAATB) throughout the body of the anthem, the final Amen has required the addition of a second Soprano strand to complete the harmony.)
