Preview available. Click track number to listen

The Tewkesbury boys and men turn their attention to that doyen of Anglican church music, Charles Villiers Stanford. Alongside familiar gems from the Evensong repertoire, sung with characteristic vigour and freshness, the programme includes the six little-known Bible Songs, each followed by its associated hymn.

‘Under Benjamin Nicholas, director of the Abbey’s Schola Cantorum, the choir has developed a strong style, remarkable for its sense of personal (or corporate) commitment as for the sonority of its tone and the assurance of its delivery. The trebles splendidly vindicate the tradition that places them at the heart of English cathedral music. The men’s voices are also powerful and resonant and the total effect is rich and forthright’
