Reviews

'Another Oxbridge college, another fine mixed-voice choir, another gorgeously captured chapel acoustic (Mike Hatch engineering)—this selection of favourite pieces by mainly British composers makes a pleasingly intimate impression' (Gramophone)
RECORDING

'This album provides a lovely programme of music. The Choir of Jesus College, Cambridge perform beautifully and the album contains a lot of wonderful rarities' (Classic FM)
Some claim this traditional English carol tune is a variant of Greensleeves; at least 500 years old, it exists in many arrangements, one of the most successful in recent decades being that by Simon Preston, who for several years was a successor to William McKie as Organist and Choirmaster at Westminster Abbey.
