Choral Concert: Vasari Singers - PARRY, H. / STANFORD, C.V. / STAINER, J. / NAYLOR, E.W. / WALTON, W. / HOLST, G. / FINZI, G. (Great British Anthems)

One of the most popular and versatile chamber choirs in the UK, the Vasari Singers have thrived for over thirty years, delighting audiences and critics with their passion, sensitivity and ethos of excellence. This disc celebrates some of the great anthems by 19th- and 20th-century British composers, including Parry’s beautiful ode Blest Pair of Sirens and Walton’s ambitious mini-cantata The Twelve. With texts from The Bible and by Aquinas, Milton and Auden, these masterful works remain a mainstay of church and cathedral choral repertoire.
