The second in the new series from Regent charting a musical journey through the church’s year at well-loved cathedrals.
The Choir of Winchester Cathedral is regarded as one of the world’s finest choirs.
This journey in music features music appropriate to the main seasons of the church’s year, including first recordings of two works by Donald Sweeney, and the original version of John Rutter’s ‘Winchester Te Deum’ written for the Choir of Winchester Cathedral.
Features both the boy and girl choristers and men of the choir.
“An auspicious start to what should prove a major collection of choral recordings.”
“'Hail, gladdening light'...[is] given with confidence, firm tuning, clear diction and phrasing and even a little drama, the excellent of the performances masking just how difficult it can be to make this sort of music work well.”
