Notes & Reviews:

On this album, the halls of Westminster Abbey ring with the voices of choir and organ lifted in the great hymns that are a vital part of England's national character and history. The recording brings the experience of Abbey occasions - from royal weddings to state funerals to regular services - into the home. The singing of hymns has its roots in the earliest days of the Christian church and remains a central part of the liturgy. In the Anglican church, and nowhere more so than in Westminster Abbey, this is a tradition that thrives, and where tunes from the sixteenth century sit happily alongside arrangements by the Abbey's musicians of today.
