Notes & Reviews:

"Fans of English cathedral music of the 1920s, '30s, and '40s will find much to savor on this fine recording from the illustrious Choir of St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. William Henry Harris served as organist at St. George's for nearly 30 years, and many of the works represented here were written for the resident choir. Several of these anthems are extended works lasting more than 10 minutes, including the skillfully-wrought evening hymn, 'The night is come,' recorded for the first time and performed in appropriately heartfelt, dramatic fashion. Another world-premiere is the lovely carol 'The shepherd-men were keeping,' its charming, picturesque text set in a straightforward hymn style with an attractive, catchy tune. Listeners who enjoy the thick-textured, ardently emotional, emphatically inflected character of this kind of music will appreciate Harris' declamatory choral writing and powerful use of the organ as both support and intermittent commentary." -Classics Today
