This is a superbly entertaining overview of the Church of England over the last fifty years.

The image of Sung Evensong may seem timeless, but the patterns of Anglican worship have changed continuously. Beginning with the great Victorian modernisers who stamped their taste on music as much as church buildings, we are taken on a memorable and entertaining musical tour that takes in: the impact of the Wesleys, the publication of "Hymns Ancient & Modern", the great organ builders, Willis and Walker, Vaughan Williams and the "English Hymnal", the Royal School of Church Music, The hymn writing explosion and the electronic age.

All this and more presented here in Trevor's inimitable and sharply observant style.

Trevor Beeson

Trevor Randall Beeson OBE was Dean of Winchester in the last two decades of the 20th century. He is also an ecclesiastical obituarist.

'... a most enjoyable collection of biographical sketches of major figures in the late 19th- and 20th-century cathedral tradition of music-making penned by a raconteur in the grand tradition ... Enjoy Beeson's writing, savor his tales.' -- Walter Knowles
