Join the Choir of Hereford Cathedral as they celebrate Easter Sunday!

This new recording (the first in three years from this wonderful choir) showcases the range of music typically sung in Hereford Cathedral during the three main services on this major day in the church’s year. We have all the music for Matins, including Responses and Psalms. The Canticles and Anthem focus on Charles Villiers Stanford with the Te Deum and Jubilate in C, and the exuberant Easter favourite ‘Ye choirs of new Jerusalem’.

The Eucharist features English polyphonic works in Latin for Easter from William Byrd and John Tavener, together with Jean Langlais’ massive ‘Messe solennelle’.

As befitting this major Festival, Evensong features Herbert Howells’ largest-scale setting of the Evening Canticles – the St Paul’s Service – and the disc concludes with another Easter favourite: ‘Blessed be the God and Father’, with its beautiful treble solo ‘Love one another‘ written by Samuel Sebastian Wesley while he was organist of Hereford Cathedral.
