This latest addition to the long-running 'English Anthems' series presents fourteen more favourites from the Anglican repertory. The earliest work on the disc is Thomas Attwood's beautiful Turn thy face from my sin, from which we move into anthems by Sir John Goss, Stanford, Sumsion, Bairstow and others. The middle of the twentieth century is represented by Howells, Britten and Walton's perennially popular A Litany ('Drop, drop, slow tears') while we then have exciting new works by Geraint Lewis and Philip Moore, alongside Rutter's famous—and enchanting—God be in my head.


'All of the music is of the very highest quality. This disc will offer lasting pleasure and satisfaction to cathedral music enthusiasts and newcomers alike' (BBC Music Magazine)
