From Elgar's 'Partsongs' (1904) to one of Britten's very last works, 'Sacred and Profane' (1975), here are some of the most beautiful pieces in the English a capella repertoire, many of them rarely recorded. All the composers here show the instinctive response to poetry, be it Shakespeare,Tennyson or Auden, so characteristic of the English choral tradition.

Founded in 1948, the RIAS Kammerchor occupies an unrivalled position among German professional choirs. Under its then principal conductor Marcus Creed, this disc was originally released in April 2002.
