Notes and Editorial Reviews
Celebrating his 50th birthday in 2012, Gabriel Jackson has had a long and close association with the Choir of St. Mary’s Cathedral. This is the choir’s second disc of Jackson’s choral music on Delphian, and under Duncan Ferguson’s dynamic direction they present a sequence of recordings that center on the Hymn to St. Margaret of Scotland, which has been newly written for the choir. A fitting celebration for Jackson’s half-century celebration, this disc opens a window on the luminous sound world of one of Britain’s finest choral composers.

Track Listing:
JACKSON: The Glory of the Lord • Fanfare for St. Mary’s • The Christ-Child • Hymn to St. Margaret of Scotland • Jesu, Rex admirabilis • Ah, mine heart • Missa Sanctae Margaretae • Justorum animae • Vidi aquam • Let us all rejoice in the Lord • In all his works • The Land of Spices • Ecce venio cito
