Notes & Reviews:

Chandos has been a major player in the long overdue rehabilitation of Parry's music. Here his most important large-scale choral works are available as a 2-CD set for the first time at the price of one full disc. Parry's two finest and most popular anthems, "Blest pair of Sirens" and "I was glad", make an attractive coupling to his famous choral works.
