LIMELIGHT RECORDING OF THE YEAR 2016
“A stunning recording in so many respects… shaped by Layton and the Trinity choir with true, intimate poetry.” – Gramophone Magazine
Born out of a wartime bet, Herbert Howells’ mighty ‘Collegium Regale’ service would “kickstart Anglican Church Music into a whole new phase of existence” (Paul Spicer). Basil Spence’s landmark Coventry Cathedral, itself of founding importance to the post-war choral revival, is an inspired and sumptuously resonant venue.
