In B-Flat. SATB Choir and Organ with optional Brass Quintet and Timpani. A classic of Anglican choral music! Dr. Richard Shephard has given us brass parts to this wonderful work. They AUGMENT the organ accompaniment and although your old scores of the Te Deum can still be used, here is a new, clean, choral score and organ score (pgs. 1-20). Also included in the download is the full score (pgs. 21-51)
The BRASS PARTS (optional timpani) are included in the EXTRAS (ZIP) file.
In his first important setting of the Services, in B flat (1879), it is clear that Stanford is sweeping away the moribund approach of earlier Victorian composers and is establishing new expressive means through applying Brahmsian procedures in cyclical unity, thematic transformation and symphonic structure. The role of the accompanying organ is also heightened to superb effect. These tenets, subsequently enriched and developed with maturity, mark all the Services that followed.
