Consortium, Edward Barbieri

Recorded in Douai Abbey, Berkshire, CONSORTIUM’s performances on this disc are utterly convincing and controlled. Their musicality is equally effective whether in word painting, pining melancholy or passages of lyrical dance.

The Choir of St John’s College Cambridge, George Guest

Limited Physical Edition

In almost a quarter-century of recordings up to 1981, Decca’s Argo imprint established St John’s College Cambridge under conductor George Guest as one of the leading choirs in the world, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their collegiate rivals King’s College Cambridge, but with a distinctly vibrant, less ethereal sound and with a broader European repertoire. The result: 42CDs, here proudly presented in their original jackets with extensive new editorial and photographs.

The complete recorded legacy on Decca of one of the most influential music directors of English Cathedral music.

42 CDs, mastered from the original tapes, and presented with original jackets.

Includes the first international Decca CD release of Langlais’ Messe Solennelle, Palestrina’s Missa brevis à 4, Flor Peeters’ Missa Festiva, Purcell’s Thy word is a Lantern, Z61, works by Casciolini, Gabrieli, Gesualdo, Banchieri, and two further CDs: 5 & 31.

Extensive booklet notes with photographs from the College’s archives and from George Guest’s personal family archives.

“Performance practice may have changed in some areas, but there’s nothing dated about the deeply satisfying blend of vocal timbres and the acoustic in which it’s all recorded, as we hear Guest’s influence passed from generation to generation. It’s a vital, timeless legacy.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2017
