Spiritually at home in the liturgy and fine choirs of High Church Anglicanism, John Ireland wrote much loved hymns and carols throughout his life. A fluent Edwardian style can be heard in earlier works such as the Stanford-influenced Te Deum and the Communion Service. The anthem Greater love hath no man took on affecting resonance when sung during memorial services during the First World War, and the ravishing Ex ore innocentium movingly responds to the agony of the Crucifixion in a rich, post-romantic musical language.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2013

“excellent performances, with impeccable blend and ensemble. The balance between the lower and upper voices is ideal, and the overall sound is crowned by bright-toned trebles. There are some accomplished solo choristers and it's refreshing to hear the choir's gentlemen singing without the operatic tone heard in other cathedral choirs.”

BBC Music Magazine

January 2013

****

“Here's an excellent idea: a whole CD of John Ireland's church music, which tends to be scattered piecemeal in anthologies. The impression it makes is very positive...the tutti singing is convincingly uninhibited.”

MusicWeb International

“Throughout this programme the Lincoln Cathedral choir is on top form and I enjoyed their singing very much...The music is rewarding and enjoyable and it’s been splendidly served by the musicians of Lincoln Cathedral.”
