Notes & Reviews:

Winchester Cathedral celebrate 50 years since the release of Geoff Stephen's Winchester Cathedral - a 1966 release for the New Vaudeville Band that reached No.1 in the charts in the USA and Canada, selling over 3 million copies and subsequently winning a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Recording. For this new disc Geoff Stephens has allowed the words of his tune to be adapted by the Choristers of Winchester Cathedral Choir, under the direction of Andrew Lumsden, "to celebrate the forthcoming 50th Anniversary of the original recording and to present the Cathedral as " a beacon of light" in the dark days through which we live". This special release also includes arrangements of Somewhere over the Rainbow and Climb Every Mountain alongside Andrew Lumsden's new arrangement of Geoff Stephen's Winchester Cathedral.
