About

This 2CD set reveals both the extravagant and intimate aspects of Walton’s compositions. It includes swaggering perfomances of the Coronation Te Deum and Belshazzar’s Feast conducted by Solti, as well as choral miniatures.

This is a compelling anthology of Walton’s choral music, showing two sides of the composer. It features the first release on CD of Simon Preston’s Argo recording of the composer’s choral music, and of Heather Harper’s L’Oiseau-Lyre disc of songs.
