Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir Charles Villiers Stanford is a central figure in Anglican church music. His many settings of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis are evensong for generations of choirboys and church-goers. This three-disc set contains a generous selection of Stanford’s sacred choral music—settings for Matins and Evensong, motets, anthems and hymns—perfectly performed by Winchester Cathedral Choir at its best, conducted by David Hill.
