This release from the admired Westminster Cathedral Choir demonstrates the splendours of the liturgy in the at-once solemn and joyful period of Lent. Masterworks from the Renaissance - familiar from Westminster Cathedral Choir’s previous award-winning recordings - alternate with works by former organists of the Cathedral (all themselves masters of liturgical composition) and are linked by the plainchant which is at the spiritual heart of the music.

Hearing the music like this in context - and recorded in the unique acoustic of the Cathedral - perfectly replicates the live experience for the listener.
