Ye Sons and Daughters
This piece - O Filii et Filiae by Jean Tisserand (d. 1494), arranged by Martin Baker of Westminster Cathedral - was sung at St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, for the Mass of the Easter Vigil and again at the Mass of Easter Day this year. The recording was surreptitiously made at the latter (thank you whoever you are!) As such the sound quality is not ideal, added to which the camera appears to be quite close to the organ. Nevertheless, the effect is stunning, with the people joining in the Alleluia refrain.
