As I was listening to ABC Classic's 'countdown' of the 100 most favoured vocal works, it came to no. 5: Gregorio Allegri's Miserere: wonderful work, and I mused about the differing musical traditions in Roman and Anglican churches compared to 'non-conformist' and reformed churches: the latter dull, the former exaulted.

I would that there was a tradition of musical excellence in performance and composition in such churches, but not so.

As it is, I content myself with recordings and the occasional visits to my old parish of St James, Sydney and Christ Church St Lawrence.
