The first in a new series from Regent charting a musical journey through the church’s year at well-loved cathedrals.
This journey in music through a year at York Minster features a number of works written for the Choir of York Minster.
Several First recordings.
Featuring either the boy or the girl choristers, together with the Songmen.
Includes Charles Stanford’s Magnficat in G sung by Isabel Suckling (The Choirgirl).
“the men have a rich tone, almost operatic at times. This can occasionally overshadow York's chorister, whose sound has an attractive fragility....An auspicious start to what should prove a major collection of choral recording.”
“York offers a particularly rich crop of new and relatively recent music...Naylor's Vox dicentis...[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.”
