One of the most popular and versatile chamber choirs in the UK, the Vasari Singers have thrived for over thirty years, delighting audiences and critics with their passion, sensitivity and ethos of excellence – “one of the finest small choral groups of our time” Gramophone. This disc celebrates some of the great anthems by 19th- and 20thcentury British composers. They are masterful works, and a mainstay of church and cathedral choral repertoire.

Gramophone Magazine

April 2011

“Though Backhouse has female sopranos and altos instead of the traditional boys' voice, their timbre is always fresh and bright, and apt for this music...[a] very satisfying selection of anthems, essential listening for anyone fond of Anglican church music.”

Muso Magazine

April/May 2011


“The Vasaris are perfect for such luxurious music - the glorious textural colours combined with the traditional church location make for a heavenly blend, and Stanford's unaccompanied Magnificat for Double Choir exemplifies their talent perfectly.”
