The Music Of Grosvenor Chapel
Joseph Sentance (organ)
The Choir of the Grosvenor Chapel, Richard Hobson (director)
The Grosvenor Chapel is a wonderful jewel of an early eighteenth-century building in Mayfair in central London. Its unique and original design influenced the architecture of many churches built in the US.
From its opening in 1731 the Grosvenor Chapel has enjoyed professional choral music of an enviable standard and this recording features a selection of choral music drawn from the wide range of repertoire sung by the renowned Grosvenor Chapel Choir in the Sunday morning service each week.
Over four hundred years of English music is represented, with works from Thomas Tallis to contemporary British composer, Jonathan Dove, together with an orchestral Mass by Mozart, and features the first recording of ‘Come, Thou Holy Paraclete’ by Francis Jackson, written for the Grosvenor Chapel Choir.

White - Hymns, Psalms and Lamentations
Robert White (d.1574) was an English composer who lived and wrote in turbulent musical times - born in the early 1530s shortly before Henry VIII embarked on the policies that would lead to a break with the church in Rome and unleash a wave of destruction on English religious institutions and their fabric. Gallicantus is a new vocal group that specialises in works from the Renaissance, with members drawn from the ranks of worldclass choir Tenebrae.Their performances reflect the precision of Tenebrae, combined with a passion and commitment to crafting exemplary interpretations of music they love.
“The present recording is sung entirely by male voices and never once is there a loss of clarity, a hint of muddiness (the opening of the Lamentations, though coming at the end of the disc, could stand as a kind of illuminated initial at the beginning of a gorgeous manuscript, so transparent and luminous is it). The music is sublime... White's... mastery of large-scale form (most notably his monumental Miserere mei, Deus, which takes over 15 minutes) is breathtaking.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2010
“Gabriel Crouch’s group Gallicantus (eight male voices) sing on their first CD with a rapture and clarity made to measure for the Tudor church music of Robert White...Impassioned, exciting music.” The Times, 9th January 2010 ****
