Advent in Winchester GCCD 4052

Product Description

Winchester Cathedral Choir directed by Andrew Lumsden - One of the best cathedral acoustics and one of the very best choirs in England present their own popular Advent Service in their Griffin debut. The Advent Carol Service in Winchester begins in darkness, as "Drop down, ye heavens" is sung to a plainsong chant in procession... Also here is a major new piece by James Macmillan.

Total time: 66:48 

"This is a most enjoyable disc. Some of the music is fairly familiar but there`s a good and welcome leavening of less familiar and, indeed, recent music. The programme as a whole is very well balanced and the execution is excellent. The recorded sound and documentation are both very good. This is an enjoyable and satisfying seasonal disc."
John Quinn - MusicWeb International, 10/10/2006
