Notes & Reviews:

The Choir of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King offers the second volume in the series of music written for the Virgin Mary. While a young choir by British standards, having been in existence only since 1960, it is firmly established as an integral part of the unique British sacred music tradition.
