Notes & Reviews:

Edmund Rubbra holds a distinguished place in the history of English music. His works combine lyrical beauty and intellectual vigour, with harmonic inventiveness deployed to draw out strong thematic ideas. Rubbra's deeply-felt spirituality and religious beliefs proved an inexhaustible wellspring in his composition, inspiring a corpus of sacred music which is at once bold and revelatory. Great singing here from the Choir of St. John's College, Cambridge.
