Info & track listings
The music presented on this disc spans some 1000 years, from a plainsong hymn to a work by Sebastian Forbes composed for performance in Guildford Cathedral in 1979. Not all the works included on it will be equally familiar, although some form part of the Advent observance in almost every cathedral. Four organ works complete the programme.
The Choir of Guildford Cathedral covers a large repertoire from plainsong to contemporary music, including a wide variety of European styles.
In addition to music for the services, it occasionally performed larger sacred works with orchestra, and during its relatively short history (see HAVP 258) the choir has made numerous recordings. It has toured widely in Britain, Europe, and North America, broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, and has made several television appearances.
