Notes & Reviews:

"This is a splendid centenary tribute and an essential contribution to the Naxos British choral series. Berkeley was a pious Catholic and much of his music is rooted in his deep spiritual convictions. His personal kind of melody and harmony sounds like nobody else. This is an impressive collection which merits repeated hearings. The choir sounds well and boasts fine soloists - three trebles and a tenor." - Peter Dickinson, Gramophone

Gramophone
an exhilarating opening, a lovely central section and an important organ part, the anthem is the most substantial work on the CD.
