Notes and Editorial Reviews

A collection of seventeen favorite hymns from England ranging over five centuries, from Byrd, Tallis and Gibbons to Charles Villiers Stanford and Benjamin Britten.

“Dr. Harper and his choir offer a survey spanning 4½ centuries... it is an astonishing achievement.... The remarkable range of music included is matched by the quality of performances... and the secure solo contributions by the trebles.... the whole program is sung & recorded in what is surely an ideal acoustic.” - Penguin Guide
