Clifford Boyd was an Australian Anglican choir director, organist, and composer of sacred music who died in 2002. Several years ago, I used one of his simpler pieces as an anthem with a small choir quite successfully. Yesterday I heard by email from his widow who remembered my contact with her and was happy to report that, thanks to the Internet, she knows that her late husband’s music is performed around the world.
If you’re looking for something in the way of an anthem, why not check out these works? You can find them listed under the composer’s name on www.cpdl.org or by going directly to www.cfboyd.com. The site is not easy to navigate, but it’s worth the trouble.
When I heard from Merle Boyd, I was reminded what a wide and wonderful world of music this is - and I was very grateful. Memory Eternal for Clifford Boyd.
