About

Hymns are a living link with the past, yet they still find freshness and relevance in the twenty-first century. Saint Thomas Aquinas comments that “hymns are the praise of God with song; a song is the exultation of the mind dwelling on eternal things, bursting forth in the voice” and this explains neatly the vital place that hymnody has enjoyed throughout the ages and continues to do so today.

‘Praise My Soul’ celebrates this glorious tradition of hymnody and showcases some of the hymns heard in Jesus College Chapel in their own regular pattern of choral services. Some of these, including ‘Drop, drop, slow tears’ and ‘Glory to thee, my God’, have been sung regularly for hundreds of years. Others such as ‘All my hope on God is founded’ or ‘Christ Triumphant’ have become classics over the last half-century.

The Choir of Jesus College Cambridge return to disc on Signum with their seventh release and their first under choral director Richard Pinel.
