'A beautiful disc of sacred motets from one of this country’s finest choirs' (Classic FM Magazine)

'What can one say? A feast beyond all dreams. Guaranteed to please' (Organists' Review)
Although De Severac’s varied oeuvre includes several operas and stage works, a number of substantial orchestral and chamber works, and many solo instrumental pieces, his charmingly simple setting of Tantum ergo has become perhaps his best-known work, especially in England, where it has been widely adopted by church and cathedral choirs. Its attractive hymn-like simplicity and diatonic harmonies give it an appealing directness of expression.
