All things British

For whatever reason, I'm fascinating by things British - their architecture, beer, and especially the Anglican Church. The choral tradition of the Anglican Church is something that has particularly captured my imagination.

I ran across this piece by Grayston Ives recently. It's the Gloria from his Missa Brevis. The video is from the 2008 Easter Mass at Liverpool's Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King (which, by the way is one of my favorite contemporary buildings). I'm not much for the use of Latin in the Liturgy, but that aside, this is one piece that never gets old for me!
