CHURCH SERVICES

 

Shaw's first piece of church music to be published in 1902: Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in C by Joseph Williams. A copy is in the Britsh Library.

In honour of his receipt of a Doctorate from Lambeth Palace in 1932, he wrote a Service in D flat especially for use in Westminster Abbey - also held in the British Library.

The many church services reflect his love of plainsong and early church music, and were written for both large and small choirs. His Anglican Folk Mass is still sung, especially in cathedrals.
