The Call: More Choral Classics from St. John's - works by Ireland, Parry, Panufnik, Mendelssohn, Stanford, Tavener, Rossini, Howells et al. / Choir of St. John's, Nethsingha

Notes & Reviews:

The pieces brought together on this CD range widely, from ceremonial works associated with affairs of state to intimate compositions addressing moments of great personal significance. The composers are similarly diverse. They include an English composer of Polish extraction (Panufnik), an Italian who spent most of his life in Paris (Rossini), an Irish and a German composer who, in their different ways, became leading lights in English music (Stanford and Mendelssohn). However, all the works recorded here have one thing in common: they are all considered quintessential to the Anglican choral tradition of yesterday and today.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
Anybody with deep affection for the more noble anthems of the Anglican tradition will need no excuse to grab a copy of this tasty selection, especially so when it features performances of such tasteful restraint... the unfolding of Holy is the true light is perhaps the most magical moment on a disc which offers, in truth, 75 minutes of utter aural sublimity.
