Notes & Reviews:

The music on this recording, arranged to take the listener through the church year, covers a wide range of English styles. It features Renaissance music from the Tudor period (Kirbye), Baroque from the Restoration (Purcell), the Victorian era (Samuel Sebastian Wesley) and the Edwardian Renaissance composers and their followers up through the 20th century (Stanford, Parry, Wood, Davies, Harris, Howells, Ley and Sanders). Recent trends in church music have favored the introduction of more music from the European mainland (Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bruckner, Faure, and Szymanowski). This recording illustrates the huge variety of classical music regularly performed by choral institutions today. The Bath Abbey Choir continues a centuries-old tradition of maintaining the glorious heritage of church music in the United Kingdom.
