“I can confidently say that this recording is one of the finest CDs of sacred choral and organ music you’ll ever hear.” – Gramophone Magazine
This album represents a creative reunion for David Briggs and Stephen Layton, who were both Organ Scholars at King’s College Cambridge in the 1980s. Their shared lifelong fascination with the particular soundworld and culture of French cathedral music finds thrilling expression in this album, which includes Evening Canticles written for Trinity in 2008.
