Notes & Reviews:

The English 'cathedral' tradition is defined by the sound and musicianship of choristers: in New College's case, boys aged between 9 and 13. A mixture of solo and ensemble items surveys a wide repertory from Tallis to Jehan Alain. This recording has a fascinating documentary value, but is much more than that: it is an anthology of wonderful choral works whose musical presentation is given even greater depth by the very special qualities of boys' voices.
