PARRY, H.: Choral Masterpieces - Songs of Farewell / I Was Glad / Jerusalem (Manchester Cathedral Choir, Stokes)

Sir Hubert Parry composed some of the most masterful and moving choral music of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. His magnificent coronation anthem for Edward VII, I was glad, and his setting of Blake’s mystical poem Jerusalem rightly remain famous, while his Magnificat and Nunc dimittis display his debt to Anglican musical traditions. The Songs of Farewell draw psalms and English poetry together into a charming garland, and Long since in Egypt’s plenteous land from his oratorio Judith sets the composer’s own prayerful text.
