About

Sir Charles Villiers Stanford is a central figure in Anglican church music. His many settings of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis are evensong for generations of choirboys and church-goers. This three-disc set contains a generous selection of Stanford’s sacred choral music - settings for Matins and Evensong, motets, anthems and hymns - perfectly performed by Winchester Cathedral Choir at its best, conducted by David Hill.

Hill and the Winchester Choir are superb. The choral tone is luscious, the discipline outstanding, the recording captures the sumptuous acoustics of the cathedral without blurring the musical details, and the performances are vivid and exciting yet carefully nuanced’ - American Record Guide

Superb performances, supremely fine singing, magnificently directed. A delight for Stanford lovers’ - Organists’ Review

[from from CDA66964, CDA66965 & CDA66974]
