Choral elements from Protestant, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and medieval traditions are included in this anthology of anthems and motets, many drawing inspiration from the Psalms. They range from sixteenth century Germany (Eccard), through the nineteenth-century Anglican tradition of Hanforth, Stainer and Stanford and the twentieth-century Catholicism of Poulenc, to contemporary England (Rose, Tavener, Harvey), Scotland (MacMillan), Australia (Halley) and the USA (Paulus). Previous recordings from the Choir of St John’s, Elora have been described as “a real joy” (Gramophone on 8557037, Faire is the Heaven), and “world-class… sensational” (ClassicsToday.com on 8554823, Psalms for the Soul).

This release, builds not only on centuries of ecclesiastical tradition: superb recordings under the directorship of Noel Edison have also become something of a fixture and highlight of our choral catalogue. This beautifully balanced new programme assumes instant pride of place amongst highly prized predecessors.

“The standard of performance is high throughout. The choir sings extremely well and where an organ accompaniment is required Michael Bloss offers excellent support. This is another enjoyable recital from the choir of St. John’s Elora where the tradition of church music is clearly being tended and nourished with dedication and skill.”
