Notes & Reviews:

Choral music from the sixteenth-century, right up to the late-twentieth-century is featured on this beautiful eleven-track album, with stunning performances from The Choir of Royal Holloway. The Chapel Choir was established in 1886 for women's voices and became a mixed choir in 1965. Forty-three years on and the choir have made 14 CD recordings and have toured most European countries, under the guidance of Rupert Gough.
