Stanford - Choral Music
Recorded 27-29 June and 3-4 July 2016. Released July 2017.
GRAMOPHONE EDITOR’S CHOICE JULY 2017
“Tea cups are shattered along with prim liturgical proprieties in a recording that reclaims this repertoire as the full-blooded Christian battle cry that it is.” – Gramophone Magazine
Recorded in Trinity College Chapel and Hereford Cathedral, this recording presents a kaleidoscopic selection of Stanford’s greatest works for choir and organ. At its heart are the iconic Three Motets, written at the end of Stanford’s tenure as organist of Trinity College for his successor, Alan Gray.
