The pageantry of a nation is encapsulated in the music of Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, Baronet, Knight and fervent supporter of the suffragette movement.

This new programme from Westminster Abbey contains some lesser-known early works alongside blazing performances of the favourites, recorded in the very building for which many of them were so skilfully crafted.

“the work that truly sends shivers up and down the spine in this programme is the anthem “I Was Glad”...Parry clearly knew the abbey’s acoustics...and the way that the words and music fill the resonant architectural expanses while, under James O’Donnell’s knowledgeable direction, remaining sharply focused is another thrilling facet of this performance.” The Telegraph, 23rd August 2015 ****

“O'Donnell's performance of I was glad is hugely expansive and majestic...I'm not sure there isn't an element of overkill...Still, it's difficult to resist the spine-tingling monumentalism of the performance, especially in its high-resolution download format...Jerusalem thrills without bombast, while a no-holds-barred Coronation Te Deum brings this virtually ideal introduction to Parry's choral output to a scorching conclusion.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2015 ****

“The Choir of Westminster Abbey give solid, well-crafted performances…Onyx Brass play very well, with a wide range of dynamics, and many listeners may welcome their contribution…there is also a plethora of magical orchestral registers [from the Abbey's 105-stop Harrison organ], brilliantly exploited by Daniel Cook in his superb, colourful accompaniments.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015

Royal Holloway Choir, Rupert Gough

The church music of Victorian England has always retained a secure foothold; not so the secular part-songs recorded here. Written to complement the Elizabethan madrigals which were then being rediscovered and performed, an unjustly neglected corner of the English vocal repertoire is revitalized by Rupert Gough and Royal Holloway Choir.

“Gough pitches the performances exactly right through, allowing the music to speak for itself without undue intervention. Press too hard on these delicate miniatures and they smudge into outright vulgarity, something Gough and his young singers avoid with some impeccably judged interpretations, executed with equal skill” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

Evening Service In D Major ('the Great')

Songs Of Farewell

Hear My Words, Ye People

Jerusalem


Roger Judd (organ)

St George's Chapel Choir, Windsor, Christopher Robinson

'A fine recital' (Gramophone)

“The more of Parry's music one comes to know, the more apparent it becomes that the received opinion of him is askew. Take the 1882 settings of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, for instance.
These, amazingly, were not published until 1982. This recording – another example of Hyperion's courageous policy – shows how un- Victorian in the accepted sense they're. In other words, they're bold, unconventional and unsanctimonious – like quite a lot of Victorian church music, one may add. Perhaps the big anthem, Hear my words (1894) shows more signs of conventionality, but it has an attractive part for solo soprano (treble here) and ends with the hymn 'O praise ye the Lord'. The St George's Chapel Choir, conducted by Christopher Robinson, sings these works with more ease than it can muster for the famous and magnificent Coronation anthem I was glad, ceremonial music that not even Elgar surpassed. A sense of strain among the trebles is always evident. Although a wholly adult choir in the Songs of Farewell might be preferable, these are assured and often beautiful performances – excellent diction – of these extraordinarily affecting motets. English music doesn't possess much that's more perfect in the matching of words and music than the settings of 'There is an old belief' and 'Lord, let me know mine end', invidious as it is to select only two for mention. A stirring Jerusalem completes this enterprising recording, which brings the sound of a great building into our homes with absolute fidelity.”

In this new album, Westminster Abbey rings with the voices of the choir and organ lifted in the great hymns which, familiar to all, are a vital part of our national character and history. The recording brings the experience of Abbey occasions—from royal weddings to state funerals to regular services—into the home.

The singing of hymns has its roots in the earliest days of the Christian church and remains a central part of the liturgy. In the Anglican church, and nowhere more so than in Westminster Abbey, this is a tradition that thrives, and where tunes from the sixteenth century sit happily alongside fervent Methodist outpourings, profound Victorian sentiment, the ‘rediscoveries’ of Vaughan Williams, and arrangements by the Abbey’s musicians of today.
