Info & track listings
Much of the music on this recording will be well-known to many people: several of the pieces are standard choral repertoire for most cathedral and collegiate choirs. In researching for this CD, however, it was possible to extract various lesser-known works of considerable merit from Bruckners choral oeuvre.
The Ealing Abbey Choir, probably one of the few Catholic music institutions in West London to have a continuing history through two world wars and an ecumenical council, was founded by Dom Cyril Rylance in 1908.
In the last four years several important changes have been made: an expansion of the repertoire and considerable improvement in performance standards have led the choir to be hailed as one of the finest amongst Catholic choirs using trebles in Britain.
