Notes & Reviews:

The publication of 'Hymns Ancient and Modern' in 1861 was instrumental in bringing about many changes in Anglican cathedral music, including the adoption of the robed choir and the association of certain texts with particular tunes. The hymns on this recording illuminate this great musical tradition and include W.H. Monk's 'Eventide', which has become the undisputed music for 'Abide with Me'.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Paul Halley (organ).
