The Choir of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, Colm Carey (director)

The Psalms of David – sometimes referred to as the hymn-book of the bible – have inspired composers writing for the church through the ages.

The vivid, poetical nature of the texts, arousing the full gamut of human emotions, has stimulated the composition of many great sacred works in Western music.

The Choir of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, directed by Colm Carey, was established in 1966 to lead and enrich both worship and liturgy in the two historic chapels within HM Tower of London.

This new CD, Exultate Deo, creates a kaleidoscopic snapshot of music inspired by the Psalms, and is a captivating insight into the wealth and variety of repertoire sung on a weekly basis by the choir.

This recital is the first ever by the girls and men of Exeter Cathedral. The programme features much previously unrecorded repertoire, reflecting the music sung by the choir throughout the Cathedral’s year.

“This programme shows the Exeter Cathedral Choir in fine shape, The 19 girl choristers make a very pleasing sound and they combine with the gentlemen of the choir to very good effect. In fact, these young singers are an excellent advertisement for the role of girls in cathedral choirs.” MusicWeb International, 13th November 2013

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.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

“'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.” International Record Review, March 2012

Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, 1695: Funeral Sentences


November 1694 was a busy month for Purcell. First, the triumphant return to London of King William III from the campaign in Flanders saw the composer produce a new anthem depicting the vanquishing of the King’s enemies. Secondly, for the celebration of St Cecilia’s Day, composed not the expected ode, but a Te Deum and a Jubilate. The Te Deum is full of grandeur, with the extra trumpets adding some thrilling drama to sections of the work. The scoring is also intimate, with some of Purcell’s most personal music – especially ‘ Vouchsafe, O Lord’, where the piling up of dissonances depicts a cry for mercy remarkable for the period.

These two works are masterpieces in Purcell’s output. However, the triumph was to be short-lived. In December 1694 a smallpox epidemic swept London, and Queen Mary died on 28 December. Purcell produced some of his greatest music for the Funeral Sentences, which he composed for her burial Setting words found in The Book of Common Prayer, Purcell’s music is moving and austere, and the sense of grief is almost palpable. The muted drums and Flatt trumpets in the Canzona leave a lasting impression on the listener. Purcell himself was dead eleven months later, aged 36.
