About

The world’s first cathedral super-group, in an album from St Paul’s Cathedral Choir augmented on 4 tracks by choristers from no fewer than 49 cathedrals, all recorded in the astonishing acoustics of St Paul’s Cathedral.

500 years of best-loved cathedral music on one album, from Tallis to Rutter, with Handel, Stanford, Mendelssohn, Parry and more between.

St Paul’s 2016 Head Chorister Nathaniel Morley sings ‘O for the Wings of a Dove’, a work that sold 6 million copies in a recording by chorister Ernest Lough in the early 20th century.

A special arrangement by John Rutter of A Gaelic Blessing, sung by Welsh baritone Aled Jones.

Every copy sold supports the ‘Diamond Fund for Choristers’ in its goal to raise £10m to support cathedral music.
