Notes & Reviews:

For 32 years the Abbey School Choir sang daily evensong in Tewkesbury Abbey. One of their final services was captured for posterity by Delphian. In this recording swansong, the choir offers a treasured memento of a uniquely English Office; complete with lessons and prayers, this sumptuous tapestry of Anglican jewels also includes the first recording of Gabriel Jackson's refulgent new setting of the Evening Canticles. Reborn as Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, the choir was immediately signed by Delphian and has embarked on a series of much-lauded recordings.
