Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second disc from the choir of Clare College, Cambridge in their series based on the major festivals in the Anglican calendar and, like 'Veni Emmanuel', produced by John Rutter. In this richly varied Passiontide sequence, polyphonic settings of the great texts of Holy Week are interwoven with a plainchant rendition of the mournful 'Stabat Mater': the traditional medieval poem meditating on the death of Jesus and the grief of his mother.
