Though out of print, The Responsorial Psalm Book (Collins) continues to be a useful source of interesting settings. This morning’s version of Psalm 31, with its independent organ part, was especially good, taking its time – not least in the refrain – and providing space for reflection.

I missed an opportunity with today’s preparation hymn, because I failed to notice that the new edition of Laudate offers an alternative first line for ‘Amazing grace’ (Laudate 846 – not 446 as misprinted on the service sheet):

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved and set me free!

So far as I remember, this was the only hymn that Fr Peter Jones actually refused to allow. I’m sure he would have approved of the new version.

Ernie Sands, composer of Sing of the Lord’s goodness (and of the even better-known May the choirs of angels) died very recently. I only met him once – at the same event at which I first met Peter Jones – and I thought of him as we sang this. May he rest in peace.

Dorico

DORICO-Logo-pure-RGB-624x200

Three and a half years ago, Avid, the new owners of Sibelius Software, sacked the entire London-based development team. The small world of computer-based music engravers held its breath. With the ink still wet on their P60s, they were snapped up by Steinberg, the German sequencer giant, to create a worthy rival to Sibelius. You couldn’t make it up.

Since then, Sibelius has survived – just – though the upgrade from 7 to 7.5 was wobbly, and that from 7.5 to 8 gave new meaning to the term ‘incremental’. However, the Steinberg project, led by the admirable Daniel Spreadbury, has dug in for the long haul, emerging from time to time with a blog post outlining its slow, steady and always impressively thorough progress towards what many of us hope will be a Sibelius and Finale killer worthy rival to Sibelius and Finale.

The latest post was an announcement of the new product’s name and release date: Dorico and 4th quarter of this year, respectively. For more detail – one and a half hours of it – watch this YouTube video.

I, for one, can hardly wait. My piggy bank stands ready.
