Notes and Editorial Reviews

Described as a rare recording from the fine choir of London’s ‘other’ Cathedral, the album features the Boy Choristers and Lay-Clerks of Southwark Cathedral Choir, Peter Wright, director. The organist is Stephen Disley. The music ranges from Byrd to Brahms to Vaughan Williams with less familiar works that were heard at choral services in the Cathedral during the Church’s year from Advent to Remembrance.

This is the third volume in Regent’s ‘A Year at…’ series featuring a year in music from England’s major Cathedrals. A comprehensive survey of the cathedral music repertoire.
