Percy Whitlock wrote two triple chants which can be used to sing Psalm 137 (By the waters of Babylon). They are recorded by Wells Cathedral Choir on Psalms of David Vol 2 in the set by Priory.
Can anyone tell me which psalters contain this chant? Confused
It's not in any of the 9 psalters that I have.

Anyone home? I'm curious about this too...

Lance, hope you don't mind, I posted your question on the BBC Message Boards.

I haven't got it, but I think that Mayhews published a collection of chants a few years ago edited by Anthony crossland who was then Organist at Wells. I seem to remember there being some triple chants in there....

It's not uncommon for places to have their own chant collections (and have them separate from the psalter). Have you tried transcribing Smile

Not yet John, but I'll check out Jason's suggestion first.

Jason
I think the Percy Whitlock Web site may have died! The diary is over 12 months out of date and the Contact Us button doesn't work. When I use the other link to Malcolm Riley, my email can't be delivered Evil or Very Mad

So I might take up John's suggestion!

Latest post on BBC3:

They're in the Oxford Chant Book, No. 2.

It's not always easy to find a copy of it these days. A search on www.bookfinder.com/ lists it, but the price is rather excessive.
