Several versions of this quadruple chant are known. Three are found in the Cambridge University Library archive: 

  • The earliest version (1970) is the quadruple chant for Psalm 12. ATBB & organ in C minor(CUL catalogue entry).
  • Then we have quadruple chant for Psalm 12. SATB & organ in E minor (CUL catalogue entry), Chant 12b from the 1970s/80s Caius Psalter in E flat minor for SATB*, and the version for Psalm 13 for SATB & organ in E flat minor (CUL catalogue entry). The SATB versions might be assumed to date from the period 1982-1989 when the Gonville & Caius College Choir added a soprano line.

Two (and possibly three) versions of this triple chant are found in the Cambridge University Library archive: 

Four versions of this double chant are known. Three are found in the Cambridge University Library archive: 

Peter Tranchell wrote this setting of Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd) in 1962 for unison voices and organ, revised it in 1970 for two-part male-voices and organ, and again in 1976 for ATBrB choir and organ. The score published here has been arranged for SATB by Peter Marchbank.

When PAT eventually bought a television he became obsessed with the Australian TV soap Neighbours (among other things!). He arranged the well-known theme tune (by Tony Hatch) as an Anglican chant - it was heard at least once in Caius chapel services, receiving the reaction ‘that seems faintly familiar...’ although the harmonisation is pure Tranchell. The composer's name is an anagram of "Neighbours", and the arranger "I'm astraan" i.e. Australian. The chant was probably written around 1987.
