Notes & Reviews:

"The child choristers of St. Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh, with the adult lower voices supporting them, sing music by Taverner with the sort of rapture and excitement that takes the breath away. This truly is a very special recording." - Classic FM

"The performances by the mixed choir of Edinburgh Cathedral are caught in a wonderfully vivid, close acoustic, so the beautifully elaborate polyphony seems all-embracing." -The Guardian

In his debut recording with the critically acclaimed Edinburgh Choir of St. Mary's Cathedral, Duncan Ferguson presents this music with forces akin to those of the 16th century - a small group of children and a larger number of men. The singers respond with characteristic freshness, and an emotional authenticity born of the daily round of liturgical performance.
