About

Beauty, purity and expressivity mark out music for upper voice choirs. On this recording, performed by one of the UKís leading vocal ensembles, the repertoire embraces classics of the genre, such as Gustav Holstís sublime Ave Maria and his third group of Hymns from the Rig Veda, as well as contemporary music.

James MacMillan and Sir John Tavener are represented by works that explore their unique musical language, whilst Bob Chilcottís technically demanding The Song of the Stars offers richly approachable pleasures.

Wells Cathedral Choralia has recently given a critically acclaimed series of major venue concerts. Itís acknowledged as one of the best upper-voice ensembles in the UK.
