Stanley Vann's Music



This web site was originally designed to help those who are experiencing difficulties in obtaining my father's music (see details further down this page). Since then the project has grown to include other material!


CHRISTMAS GREETINGS: failure! I was unable to add our usual Christmas greetings this year as I found that I couldn't access the website to update it. (Due to a combination of a new computer system here and a fairly lengthy period abroad in the latter part of the year, I failed to notice an email from my web host which warned me of changes to the hosting arrangements!) However, if you see this, it means that I have regained control! So I hope you had a happy Christmas, and wish you a happy and healthy 2019.


About Stanley... 

Sound Samples page. For those who are unfamiliar with Stanley's music, or those considering adding some to their repertoire, there are some sound samples of a selection of his compositions on this page. New samples added for 2016

Stanley's music & his Peterborough Cathedral choir on YouTube  (new page added June 2016)

Stanley's "Peterborough sound" A page recording the changing sound of Peterborough Cathedral Choir during Stanley's years with the choir.  

Recent CD Priory Records have released a CD of the Tudor Church Music (Batten and Dering) recording. See here. I am told that the CD is also on sale at Peterborough Cathedral bookshop.

I have no further news about when the recordings "Christmas by Candlelight" and Stainer's "The Crucifixion" will be available as digital downloads. I will post details here when I have them.

Details of two other CDs: "Hearken to the Whispering Angels" and Christmas by Candlelight
