St Paulís Cathedral Choir


Andrew Carwood


St Paulís Cathedral Choir


Andrew Carwood


Formed 900 years ago, the St Paulís Cathedral Choir Ė one of the worldís most celebrated cathedral choirs Ė finally makes their debut on Decca, with an album of traditional and brand new festive carols from the heart of London, under the direction of Andrew Carwood.

On this album, old and new sit side by side as classic carols in famous arrangements rub shoulders with new works such as Philip Stopfordís beautiful setting of the 16th Century Lully Lulla Lullay, and Graham Jordan Ellisís captivating There is no Rose which is rarely recorded. Other works new to Decca include the lively Carol of the Bells and John Rutterís ravishing All Bells in Paradise.

The Cathedral of St Paulís in London is among the worldís most recognised buildings, in the very heart of London. The Choir sings 7 services a week, added to which are televised UK state occasions held at St Paulís, ranging from the wedding of Charles and Diana to the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In addition to its role at services in this world-famous Cathedral, the Choir frequently gives concerts and broadcasts, notably a 3-week, 7-state sell-out tour of the USA earlier in 2015.
