This recording forms part of the celebrations, in 2001, of the fortieth anniversary of the consecration of the Cathedral Church of the Holy Spirit, Guildford. It contains a Festal Evensong of the kind that might be heard on Whitsunday, the Cathedrals patronal festival.
The Choir of Guildford Cathedral was formed in 1961 under Barry Rose, the Cathedrals first Organist and Choirmaster. Since the consecration of the Cathedral, the choir has maintained a daily Sung Evensong and has built up an enviable reputation for its singing.
When Barry Rose moved to St Pauls Cathedral in 1974, he was succeeded by Philip Moore, who in turn was appointed to York Minster in 1983. Andrew Millington then took over and remained for 16 years before moving to Exeter Cathedral in 1999. His successor is Stephen Farr, who was previously Assistant Master of the Music at Winchester Cathedral.
