  • "In a Monastery Garden" (AW Ketelbey ) Conducted by The Composer 1928 Classic Performance by the Albert W Ketelbey Concert Orchestra recorded for Columbia in 1928 Notes from the album 1928 : The first theme represents the serenity of the monastery Garden, the second theme the more personal note of sadness and contrition : presently the organ is heard playing the "Kyrie Eleison" with the ringing of the Chapel Bell, The Monks now sing the chant, joined later by the Choir in the Chapel, The first theme is heard again very softly, played by muted strings as if it had become etherealised a solo voice now takes up the melody at the conclusion of which the Monks and Choir resume the "Kyrie- Eleison" singing loudly with great exultation
