Quick Overview

Fine performances by Chichester Cathedral Choir.
Here, the Choir of Chichester Cathedral, undoubtedly one of the finest church choirs in the world, perform the best anthems of leading church music composers of recent times. From Herbert Sumsion (born 1899), who knew and worked with Elgar, through to the post-war generation with the likes of Malcolm Archer (born 1952), this collection provides a comprehensive cross section of wonderful contemporary choral music. Here we have skilled melodists who write appropriate music to clothe their chosen text.
