Great Choral Anthems

Great Choral Anthems

Click here to preview trk 1

‘In quires and places where they sing here followeth the anthem.’
These words from the Book of Common Prayer used in the Anglican Church since 1662 have led to a huge amount of musical creativity over the succeeding centuries. The words occur in the order of service for Evensong, which is still today a daily service in many cathedrals and churches throughout Great Britain. If the choir is singing the service there is nearly always an anthem, a setting to music of words relevant to the time of day or the period in the Church’s year. This album presents a selection of these works taken mainly from the Victorian and Edwardian periods, a time which saw a particular explosion in musical composition for the church.

Bach Great Organ Works

Johann Sebastian Bach, possibly the greatest composer ever to have lived, composed a huge amount of organ music, much of which has remained some of the best-known pieces of music of all time. Most of the music was written when Bach was a young man and it retains a dynamism and joy which has never been equalled. So here we have a selection of toccatas, fantasias, preludes and fugues played on a stunning original instrument from 1732.
