CD Reviews

Glorious!!
sblake8 | 09/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An earlier LP from King's in the 70's under the then Conductor Sir David Willcocks touched upon some of these choral'gems'. The present conductor Stephen Cleobury continues this tradition with some of the same and several 20th century anthems. Glorious singing of the highest standard!! The choir is in fine form here. Particular highlight's are 'Faire is the heaven' and 'And I saw a new heaven'. Recommended wholeheartedly!!"
One of the Glories of Fine Church Music
R. Shillingford | Birmingham UK | 03/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This collection of English Anthems is a real treasure for anyone who wants to here good Church Music in a glorious Setting. The two Anthems that would simply bring tears to your eyes and send shivers down your spine for me are the Edgar Bainton And I saw new Heaven and the Kenneth Leighton Let all the world with the final chords dying out on that sonorous Double 32 Trombone of the magnificent Harrison Organ."
A fascinating anthology
Nancy Wiley | 01/14/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album is well-appreciated in being a well-performed anthology of choral gems by English composers. Much of the fine music here is by composers whose names may not be as familiar as Britten, et al. What is revealed, however, is the mastery of those individuals, as well as their lack of deserved recognition."
