About this Recording

HARRIS, William: Choral Music

During his tenure as Organist at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, William Henry Harris composed much music for choir and for organ solo as well as larger pieces for the Three Choirs Festival and two premières at the London Proms. In addition to music previously unrecorded, this disc includes Harris’ two best known works: Faire is the heav’n, and Bring us O Lord God, both pinnacles of twentiethcentury English Church Music, recorded in the Chapel by the Choir of boys and men with which he was associated for almost thirty years.
