Choir of Worcester Cathedral; Director: Donald Hunt, Organs: Harry Bramma, Paul Trepte, Adrian Partington

“This chosen collection was recorded over a 12 year period, during which time the Cathedral Choir built up an enviable repertoire of French Church Music.  Naturally the personnel of the choir changed, and the organ tone was improved, but the commitment and sincerity of the performances remained consistent, and this will be conveyed to the listener in what may be an unfamiliar repertoire including then several 1st recordings*,  yet very refreshing and spiritually uplifting,.” (Dr. Donald Hunt)
