JD 4/16 Anglican Chant Rocked British Pop World

 

In Britain during the 1960s there was a band that completely changed the world. Sure, many tried, but none could possibly been as successful as the Mastersingers.

 

While one would expect the world to follow new sounds, new ideas and new teenage heartthrobs, something very old made the charts. 16th century old to be precise. Now some of you who are into this rock and roll nonsense might find Anglican Chant to be somewhat boring. Others might find the highway code or the weather frightfully dull. But when combined, you have the most amazing musical piece ever created. 

The Mastersingers did exactly that, and in 1966 these two epic pieces of music both made the top 50 in London. And the reason is quite simple to deduce. Anglican Chant, while sounding rather bland to the untrained ear, is actually more musically varried than the most intricate work of rock and roll. Mostly because most rock and roll is one simple chord played ad nauseum. I learned this from playing Guitar Hero, so it must be true. 

After reading this, I'm sure you are now dying to hear the music that tore apart the charts in 1966, so here you go. Weather Forecast and Highway Code in .mp3 format.
