Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording features St Paul’s Cathedral Choir at the peak of their power, performing a yearning sequence of liturgical works that includes some of the best-loved choral works of all time: Mendelssohn’s Hear my prayer (‘O for the wings of a dove’), an excerpt from Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, and Allegri’s Miserere. Twentieth-century ‘mystics’ Jonathan Harvey and Sir John Tavener are both represented, and the album reaches a crescendo through the expansive writing of Stanford in G and the joyously declamatory Te Deum by Benjamin Britten.
