Why does this keep happenning to me?

Herbert Brewer's 'Marche Heroique'. Lovely piece, hard to find in print, even harder to find recorded. I found it on youtube last year. After forgetting about it, I looked for the name of it, remembering that I had posted it here. I found the link. I clicked it.


In consolation, I've fallen in love with the tune 'Engelberg'. It's in my parish's hymnal, as the setting to two pretty terrible sets of modern lyrics. Here it is at St.John's, detroit, sung to a proper hymn. If you can stomach it, here it is as a setting to one of the hymns in our hymnal.
