some personal views for Catholic readers
The two that spring to mind are:Fr Weber’s setting (Modern Notation)http://musicasacra.com/pdf/passion_john.pdfMore challenging:Victoria’s (you need SATB for the chorus)http://www3.cpdl.org/wiki/images/6/61/Victoria-JohnPassion.pdfI'll have a look for something simpler because l think honestly you would struggle to get the singers even for the Weber
Hello Father. How are you?Yes, there's a recording on YouTube in 8 separate parts. Google "The Passion of Christ according to St. John in English YouTube" and you should be able to find it.
Thanks, Jane but I wanted it for the Liturgy - in three parts
Ah Clare, I should have realised you had it dealt with!
Viadana's version is rather nice. www2.cpdl.org/wiki/images/9/9e/Viadana-JohnPassion.pdfYou need a Chronista who can sing well for this..
Hi Father - ring the Holy Name Church in Manchester 0161 273 2435 - they sing t every year and will, I'm sure let you have a copy.
We used to sing it at the English College. The setting was done by Fr Guy Nicholls and is probably the one that Fr Matus uses at Manchester, so if you can't get through to Fr Ray, try Fr Guy.
I have a copy. English, plainchant with four-part Victoria interpolations.In fact the booklet includes all the Good Friday propers: Responsories (Domine audivi, Eripe me), Passion, Acclamations for the Unveiling of the Cross before Veneration, Victoria's Reproaches including Hagios Theos, John of Portugal's Crux Fidelis, Pange lingua, and antiphons for the Translation of the Sacrament. All in English. I can lend you the copy.
