What Heaven might sound like



The Laodiceans think they may have found the most beautiful piece of music in the world. Ever. I think they are wrong as they didn't include Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis.

If Mrs P can muster a 40-piece choir, I'd like it at my funeral. Please.

I hope your All Saints Day is full of joyful hope.

Spem in alium is another effect piece. You haven't got much room for manoeuvre with forty voices, esp. not in the way Tallis chooses to use them. I would have loved to hear what Carver would have done with forty voices, mind.

I don't know from an effect piece, but it's lovely.
