HAVPCD286 – A classic selection 2 Roger Sayer at the organ of Rochester Cathedral
This recording is the second ‘Classic Selection’. The first volume included pieces that had often stirred members of the congegation during the year; the pieces on this recording have inspired performers, musicians, and organ-lovers for many years, but without the irritation of being simply popular or bland.
HAVPCD262 – And I saw a new heaven Music enlightening life’s journey
All Saints’ Parish Church, Kingston’s last remaining Grade One listed building, means something to everyone who lives or works in the Royal Borough. There are few churches with a more fascinating history. For more than a thousand years a church has stood on this site: Egbert, King of Wessex, held his Great Council here in 838, and Athelstan and Ethelred the Unready were two of the seven Saxon Kings of England crowned here in the 10th century. The construction of the present church was begun in 1120 under the orders of Henry I, and has been enlarged and altered throughout its history to give us the building we know today.
HAVPCD261 – Watching 20th-century choral and organ music
Over the years Clifton College Chapel has been a place where fine music has enhanced worship, creating and maintaining a noteworthy tradition of singing and choral music. Reflecting newer and contemporary ways, the music that has been recorded here demonstrates the choir’s current repertoire and will, we hope, bring increasing insights and enjoyment.
