The setting for this Service from the Book of Common Prayer is by the English composer and Stanley Wilson. Wilson was a "rising name" of the 1920s and 30s although today he is relatively unknown. He studied with Sir Charles Villiers Stanford and Sir Adrian Boult and composed in a number of genres including works for orchestra as well as for choir. Among the latter are settings of the canticles for Morning and Evening Prayer in the key of C major.
The Anthem is by Edgar Bainton: "And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth" (Revelation 21:1-4). Bainton was one time Director of the NSW State Conservatorium of Music.
