Notes & Reviews:

A recording of Georgian music for Holy Week, Easter and funerals ranging from psalmody to orchestral anthems.

'Once again Peter Holman's scholarship offers a fascinating glimpse of a neglected repertoire' (BBC Music Magazine)

'An infectious CD bringing to life a neglected period and its forgotten music. What fun parish music must have been for the likes of Jane Austen, William Wordsworth, Blake or Thackeray' (Classic CD)
