Evensong - A recording by Canterbury Cathedral Choir, directed by David Flood. Includes works by Holst and Britten.
"The Cathedral Choir's new CD is a response to the hundreds of requests for a recording of Evensong. This recording captures the choir in fine form and includes some outstanding music from the choir's wide repertoire, linked with readings chosen by the Dean. It includes a wonderful recording of Rejoice in the Lamb by Benjamin Britten, the Magnificat by Giles Swayne, Nunc Dimittis by Gustav Holst and the piece written for the Jubilee of HM the Queen in 2012 by Will Todd: Call of Wisdom. With some fine organ voluntaries from David Newsholme, this is a disc not to be missed"
