About

Another great disc from the dazzling Choir of St Johnís College Cambridge under their Director of Music David Hill, collaborating with great musicians including Roderick Williams, Paul Provost and the Britten Sinfonia.
The music of Edward Bairstow (1874Ė1946) is an essential part of the British cathedral music tradition. He set his texts Ďwith a beauty which makes one never able to think of the words without recalling the musicí, as the Dean of York wrote on the occasion of his seventieth birthday. Certainly the more well-known works on this disc eminently fulfill this criterion.
St Johnísí inspired recordings of these classic numbers in the matchless acoustic of the chapel make this a disc to treasure on these grounds alone.
However it also includes some glorious rarities from different points in Bairstowís career, which demonstrate his mastery of different styles and developing harmonic language. The Five Poems of the Spirit are a particular highlight: beautiful and unusual settings of metaphysical poetry
