Featuring the version accompanied by chamber orchestra and organ, the choir and Scott are joined for Fauré’s best-known work by the excellent New York-based Orchestra of St Luke’s.
Also featured on this recording are a selection of shorter works including the celebrated Cantique de Jean Racine and the striking Messe Basse for upper voices.
'The choir of Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York has been gradually building a reputation as a beacon of excellence in Anglican worship [...] The abiding impression is one of intimacy, innocence and wonder [...] This is a moving, memorable recital' - BBC Music Magazine (5 stars, performance & sound; Christmas Choice 2015)
'[John Scott's] sudden death earlier this year makes Dancing Day perhaps the most poignant of discs and bears testament to his phenomenal musicianship and taste. The choir is absolutely secure from trebles to basses' - Gramophone (Editor's Choice)
'The choir sings wonderfully, whether accompanied by Mr Buzard, Benjamin Sheen on organ, or Sara Cutler on harp. Several of the boy trebles [...] have lovely solo moments' - New York Times
'[...] a well-trained, responsive choir [...] The singing is accomplished and fresh [...] On this showing the premature passing of John Scott must have left a big hole at Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue.' - MusicWeb International
'As one would expect from this stable, Scott directs hugely satisfying readings [...] the boys relishing the the challenge of Britten's astonishing virtuosity' - Choir & Organ (5 stars)
