Notes & Reviews:

A unique recording project featuring the Choir of Southwell Minster directed by Paul Hale, in their first recording on the Regent label. For this disc the men and boys choir of Southwell Minster traveled to Sées in Normandy, to record the monumental double organ Masses of Vierne and Langlais using the two original, and recently restored, Cavaillé-Coll organs of the cathedral - the small Choir Organ built in 1880, and the much larger Grand Organ at the cathedral's west end, built in 1883. For the first time, the distinctive colors of authentic 19th-century Cavaillé-Coll instruments, for which the works were written, are heard in a recording made by an English cathedral choir.
