About this Recording

Choral Concert: Wells Cathedral School Choralia - CHILCOTT, B. / MEALOR, P. / HOLST, G. / MACMILLAN, J. / O'REGAN, T (The Song of the Stars)

Beauty, purity, and expressivity mark out music for upper voice choirs. On this recording, performed by one of the UK’s leading vocal ensembles, the repertoire embraces classics of the genre such as Gustav Holst’s sublime Ave Maria and his third group of Hymns from the Rig Veda, as well as contemporary music. James MacMillan and Sir John Tavener are represented by works that explore their unique musical language, whilst Bob Chilcott’s technically demanding The Song of the Stars offers richly approachable pleasures.
