Reviews

'As is only to be expected from its past record, the Choir of Westminster Cathedral brings tonal richness and a superb musicality to its performances of these works. The solos sound as confident from the trebles as from the men, and one can almost smell the incense from the atmospheric recording' (The Daily Telegraph)

'A stirring Vision of aeroplanes testifies to the choir's extraordinary virtuosity which, under Baker, is clearly going from strength to strength … Hyperion has been making recordings in Westminster Cathedral almost since the day the company first came into being, and, as ever, the sound on this latest disc is gorgeous, full of depth, and with an ideal balance between, choir, organ and atmosphere' (International Record Review)

'A glorious celebration of music written with the acoustics of Westminster Cathedral in mind' (Classic FM Magazine)
The Te Deum in G was set by Vaughan Williams in 1928. Commissioned for the enthronement of Cosmo Lang as Archbishop of Canterbury on 4 December, this latter piece rolls with confidence from the outset, a strong declamatory unison leading to an antiphonal representation of the angelic chorus before the opening material is transformed into a prayerful, supplicatory ending.

Le Te Deum in G, mis en musique par Vaughan Williams, fut commandé pour l’intronisation de Cosmo Lang à la dignité d’archevêque de Cantorbéry, le 4 décembre 1928, cette pièce retentit de confiance, d’emblée: un puissant unisson déclamatoire débouche sur une représentation antiphonée du chœur angélique, avant que le matériau d’ouverture ne soit mué en une conclusion déprécatoire, suppliante.

Français: Hypérion

Im 1928 komponierte Vaughan Williams das Te Deum in G. Dieses letztere Werk wurde anlässlich der Inthronisation von Cosmo Lang als Erzbischof von Canterbury am 4. Dezember in Auftrag gegeben und kommt von Anfang an sehr selbstbewusst daher; ein starkes deklamatorisches Unisono führt zu einer antiphonischen Darstellung des Engelschors bevor das Anfangsmaterial in ein bittendes, flehendes Ende umgewandelt wird.
