The Choir of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle offers a sumptuous programme of jewels from the anthem tradition whose repertoire spans five centuries. The beautiful surroundings of St George’s Chapel provide an acoustic both immediate and luxurious, and the choir responds to Timothy Byram-Wigfield’s direction with a sound which is at once arresting and awe-inspiring.

‘There are many choral groups performing cathedral music on CD and in the concert hall, but no matter how polished their singing nothing quite matches the experience of hearing our greatest church choirs singing their own repertoire on their own territory. So it is with this splendid CD: surely the next best thing to being present in the sumptuous surroundings of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle’
— Organists’ Review, August 2006

‘demonstrates the choir’s versatility. Their freshness is an asset, and the extremes of expression … are beautifully caught’
— Gramophone, September 2006
