HAVPCD279 – Dancing Day Christmas music from Exeter
Christmas is a special time at cathedrals and at Exeter many thousands of people attend concerts and services over the festive period. Beofre Christmas, in addition to the daily services, the choir presents a concert of seasonal music, including one or more extended pieces. John Rutter’s Dancing Day, scored for harp and upper voices, is one such work, and it forms the centre-piece of this disc. Other pieces include well-loved hymn-carols and compositions by familiar names on the choral scene.
