Some more music of Parry

Some more music of Sir Hubert H. H. Parry at First Baptist Church if the City of Washington DC this morning.

One is a Chorale Prelude in A Major on “Martyrdom”, played by organist Lon Schreiber,  Of course this raises the question of reviewing Debussy’s hour-long choral setting (St. Sebastian).

Another is the 3-stanza hymn “O Praise Ye the Lord” (B-flat”), as performed here in England (before Brexit). .
“O Jerusalem” was also sung this morning, before the Thanksgiving Dinner.
