William Smith of Durham

Wedding season will be upon us shortly, so here is a suggestion for those looking for some beautiful responses to a church service.

William Smith was a 16th century organist and composer whose Preces and Responses have become well known and widely used in the United Kingdom. Their popularity is well deserved and may be included in a service, provided the choral director is willing. Listen to it here, its the second item (starts at 4'10" and end at 5'10"). Very lovely.
