English Visionaries - Vaughan Williams: A Vision of Aeroplance; Mass in G minor; Lord, Thou hast been our refuge; Holst: The Evening Watch; Howells: The House of the Mind / Nicholas Morris, organ

Notes & Reviews:

This fifth disc in SOMM's successful collaboration with the Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir and Paul Spicer adds another delightful album to the catalogue. The repertoire chosen by Spicer for this release despels the thought that the music of Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst and Herbert Howells is "English" in a derogatory sense, recalling more Elisabeth Lutyen's "cowpat school" label than that of "visionary". As amply demonstrated here, all three were composers of enormous transcendent vision, forging a uniquely English musical revolution.
