'These singers of John Rutter's choir are so expert, so very good at everything they do. They have, one would say, an instinctive feeling for rhythm. Their tone is natural and (very nearly) unflawed. They shade and shape the phrases beautifully' (Gramophone)
The long-lived Stone was a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, known to have sung at the coronation of James I in 1603. His simple setting of the Lord’s Prayer, still widely used, first appeared in the collection Certaine Notes, published in 1565.
