Notes & Reviews:

Stephen Cleobury conducts the choir of King's College Cambridge in this memorable recital of English Romantic choral music exquisitely sung and superbly recorded in the college's famous chapel. Timed to coincide with the Jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II this DVD presents a mouth-watering collection of favorite anthems.

"They're all here, these Sunday-best anthems of the Stanford-to-Howells era. The sequence of Hail, gladdening light, Greater love hath no man and I was glad is rich fare for a start. It might be questioned whether there is a film to be made out of this; but yes, the visual element is a genuine enrichment. The beauty of the candlelit chapel is a presence that accompanies the music. For those who want more, there is a 30-minute documentary which looks at a chorister's life at King's, plus a performance of Stanford's Postlude in D with the option of three different, simultaneously filmed camera angles." - Gramophone

"The real strength of Anthems from Kings is the sound reproduction. With surround sound the resulting aural landscape is amazing and well balanced, sounding as if one is standing in the legendary acoustic of King's College Chapel...the alternative 2-channel stereo offers a higher digital resolution than any ordinary 16 bit CD recording and is uncompressed, lending an unusual breadth and freshness to the sound." - Choir & Organ
