    Why?

    I certainly don't want it.

    I’m afraid I don’t see the appeal.

    I think you should check out some of the Iona Community Music, or the Taize Community Music. Personally, I would prefer some Anglican Chant, and I think that much of the strength of Anglican Music is to be found in things that the people can sing rather than just listen to. Proper Anglican Hymns have real appeal - Praise my Soul the King of Heaven, Immortal Invisible God only wise, Let all mortal Flesh keep silence .....

    I would think you'd need to go to a Spanish church to hear Spanish Christian music. It's better than much of the music I've heard in South American Anglican churches. Not really a piece for congregational singing though.

    Although there's no "Anglican Chant", there are plenty of chants composed by Anglicans.

    Fair enough. I was thinking of chant less in the context of a way to sing texts not written in metre, and more of in the sense of a repeated rhythmic phrase song.

    Well-balanced Anglican music programs in many cases will already have room in their rotations for solo anthems with tasteful guitar accompaniment, such as you have linked here. For example, "Coverdale's Carol" from The Oxford Book of Carols, does very well as a solo anthem with simple guitar or lute accompaniment.
