On their own label The Hallé Orchestra and Sir Mark Elder continue their esteemed series with a new recording of Debussy Images & other works. These orchestral masterpieces, written in the years following the success of La mer, are coupled with the Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Debussy's own orchestration of one of his piano waltzes, and the first recording of Et la lune descend in another of Colin Matthews's acclaimed orchestrations.

Stanford and Howells represent the absolute pinnacle of the English church music tradition, and it is a tradition to which these performances by The Cambridge Singers and John Rutter are fully alive.
