Reviews

You can measure a choir by how well it sings Herbert Howells's music. Does it make sense of those long vocal lines? Can it sustain them? How will it cope with those tricky intervals? But these are not problems to detain these youthful singers, who sing with the sensitivity and precision you would expect of the next generation of choral scholars. They give some lovely accounts in this interesting collection, particularly "One thing I desire" and the great canticle settings, those huge monuments in the landscape of 20th-century sacred music.
