King’s College Choir has released its first new album of 2015, a recording of anthems based on hymns from the Anglican choral tradition. It is the first album to explore anthems from this tradition.
Highlights include Parry’s epic Hear my words, ye people, Ireland’s Vexilla Regis, and organ preludes on traditional hymns by Parry and Edwards. It also includes Alison Balsom playing the trumpet on Lord, Thou hast been our refuge by Vaughan Williams.
This release follows the critically acclaimed recording of Fauré’s Requiem, which was awarded BBC Music Magazine’s Album of the Month and was in the Specialist Classical Charts for half a year.
