Notes & Reviews:

The mixed voices of Wells Cathedral Choir, under their director Malcolm Archer, continue their survey of the rich heritage of music sung in the Anglican church in volume 5 of The English Hymn series. The 23 hymns on this CD focus on the themes of faith and assurance; their role is to inspire us, comfort us, teach us and enrich our lives.

'The Wells Cathedral Choir again shows its stuff - and it's glorious ... because of this choir's sturdy, full-bodied singing, both exuberant and reverent, and its natural, sensible, unaffected phrasing and enunciation. Hymn lovers need no encouragement or further discussion; these inspiring texts and timeless tunes speak for themselves' (classicstoday.com)
