Notes & Reviews:

This mid-priced Helios series reissue features David Hill leading The Choir of Westminster Cathedral, two of its admired former organists and the English Chamber Orchestra Brass Ensemble in and illuminating and joyful collection of works by Jean Langlais. Langlais studied in Paris and wrote for the choir and organ of Notre Dame. He also taught and played often in the United States, and many of his works were written for American performers and audiences. His music was inspired by his love of the Catholic liturgy and of Gregorian chant. Plainsong melodies feature prominently, making much use of parallel fifths and octaves which suggest a twentieth-century update of early organum.
