Notes & Reviews:

British organist/composer Clifford Harker (1912-1999) became organist of Bristol Cathedral in 1949 after returning from war service. He remained there for 34 years and founded the Bristol Cathedral Concert Choir. After his retirement from the cathedral, he became organist of the Lord Mayor's Chapel, a post he held until ill-health forced him to retire.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This is apparently the first album devoted entirely to his music. This is well-crafted and spiritually sincere Anglican liturgical music. I enjoyed it all very much. I would hardly rank them alongside the more famous college choirs of Cambridge or Oxford. Still, they deliver this music with admirable facility and sincerity. Anglican choirmasters may well find some useful material here.
