Notes and Editorial Reviews

A celebration of great choral music for treble voices spanning more than two centuries from the glorious counterpoint of Bach's Suscepit Israel to Sir David Willcock's beautiful setting of Psalm 23. This recording is a stunning showcase of the talents of the choir and Jean Ashworth Bartle its Founder and Artistic Director. It is an appropriate tribute in 2003, when the chorus is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
