Immortal Fire - Winchester Cathedral GCCD 4049

Product Description

This is already being hailed as a superb-sounding debut record from the Girl Choristers & Lay Clerks using the well-known acoustic qualities of this great Cathedral. The strong theme is "music for Female Saints" & those heralded here include St Ursula, St Cecilia & St Margaret of Scotland, the latter featured in a newly commissioned piece.

Total time: 74:27 

"The choir of Girl Choristers was formed at Winchester Cathedral in 1999. The programme is well chosen. Not only does it mix an attractive variety of composers but many of the items are not typically associated with the Cathedral liturgical repertoire. The final item in the recital is Grieg`s Ave Maris Stella which responds well to the emotional nature of the words. It receives a fine performance from the choir, making a lovely conclusion to a very fine recital."
