2006; unison voices; alternate verses taken by organ solo; Ton solennel, as sung at Notre-Dame de Paris, transcribed into modern notation for my friends in the choir of All Saints Chapel, Sewanee, TN, Baccalaureate May 2006
'The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, sing superbly under the expert direction of Stephen Layton; wonderful quiet, melting legato phrases and passionate forte sections. The composer himself, playing the Gloucester Cathedral organ, provides impeccable accompaniments and stunning improvisations. I can confidently say that this recording is one of the finest CDs of sacred choral and organ music you’ll ever hear. I’m not ashamed to say I had tears in my eyes; listeners who are churchgoers and nonbelievers alike will find this disc a profoundly moving experience' (Gramophone)
