Stanley's "I saw a maiden" organ accompaniment recovered.

The original organ part of this lovely arrangement had been lost. It has now been reconstructed from a recording as far as possible by friends in the Netherlands and Colorado, U.S.A.

   

If anyone reading this happens to know if Stanley wrote a companion Jubilate/Benedictus/Benedicite to the Rochester Te Deum, I would be most interested to hear about it! There are small bits of evidence that such a piece exists, but these conflict with one another! One intriguing clue in the file which Stanley kept, listing his compositions, shows the entry:

"Te Deum & Benedicite....(In the Manual of Plainsong Red Book)"!

Perhaps there's a copy tucked in a Red Book at Peterborough Cathedral? Please contact me at the e-mail address at the bottom of the Home Page if you have any information or ideas on this.
