Anglican Chant, the second installment

This time, it's the Westminster Abbey Choir singing Psalm 67, and chant of Edward Bairstow:

The Coverdale version of Psalm 67:
God be merciful unto us, and bless us *
and shew us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us;
That thy way may be known upon earth *
thy saving health among all nations.
Let the people praise thee, O God *
yea, let all the people praise thee.
O let the nations rejoice and be glad *
for thou shalt judge the folk righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.
Let the people praise thee, O God *
let all the people praise thee.
Then shall the earth bring forth her increase *
and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.
God shall bless us *
and all the ends of the world shall fear him.

Here, too, are "The Responses" - also from the Westminster Abbey Choir, and for Mattins - although it doesn't give a composer:
