Notes and Editorial Reviews

A superb collection of English liturgical music spanning 450 years of Anthems, from Tallis, Byrd, and Gibbons to the present day. 67 magnificent tracks, totaling five hours, in a handsome four-disc set.

“High overall standard... An astonishing achievement... These look back to the very roots of English church music... They bring a powerfully committed response from the Magdalen Choristers and the whole programme is superbly sung in what is surely an ideal acoustic.” (Penguin Guide, 3 Stars)

"This anthology strikes a blow for progress… The English anthem comes of age at last.” (Gramophone)
