General Information

Title: Communion Service in G, Op.81
Composer: Charles Villiers Stanford
Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredCommunion Service

Language: English
Instruments: Organ

First published: 1905
Description: Stanford's Communion setting, part of his Morning, Evening and Communion Service in G major, Op.81, originally included the following movements:

  • Kyrie (decalogue responses)
  • Gospel responses
  • Credo
  • Sursum corda
  • Sanctus
  • Gloria

In common with his other Communion settings, as he was writing for the Book of Common Prayer liturgy, Stanford did not set the Kyrie, Benedictus or Agnus Dei. A few years later, in response to changing liturgical trends, he wrote the Benedictus and Agnus Dei in B flat to complement this setting.
