Notes & Reviews:

"Some of these hymns are performed by the Cambridge Singers a cappella, others are heard with organ. The folk-hymns are complemented by the delicate and evocative sound of harp, and five of the grandest hymns are given festival arrangements with brass, timpani, percussion and organ. This colourful and varied panorama of words and music is not just for hymn enthusiasts but for all who enjoy the artistry of the Cambridge Singers." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice)
