Product Description

CD Description

England My England—-performed by the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge—-opens and closes with coronation music: "Zadok the Priest" was written for the crowning of George II in 1727, "I Was Glad for That" of Edward VII in 1902. Both were so successful that they have been sung at every coronation since their premières. Parry’s "processional anthem" is heard here in its full panoply of extra brass and shouted vivats, the choir of King’s college providing the semi-chorus in the exquisite interlude "O pray for the peace of Jerusalem".

In between are motets ancient and modern--from the miniature "If ye Love Me" and the architectural splendour of the 40-part Spem in alium to William Harris’ dramatic double-choir spenser setting "Faire is the Heaven"; well-known psalms sung to Anglican chant; and favourite hymns, notably "All People that on Earth do Dwell", arranged ceremonially for another coronation, that of Elizabeth II.

As well as national rejoicing there is solemn remembrance. "Come ye Sons of art Away" is Purcell’s 1694 birthday ode for Queen Mary, "Thou knowest", Lord" part of the music he wrote for her funeral just nine months later. John Ireland’s "Greater Love Hath no Man" is often heard on Remembrance Sunday; Sir John Tavener’s "Song for Athene" made a powerful impression at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales; while JJohn Rutter’s small-scale, personal requiem touched a wider public following the attacks of 11 September 2001. But "Nimrod" above all epitomises music of national remembrance. Here a choral setting of it, "Lux Aeterna", represents our "Shakespeare of music", Edward Elgar.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Set! 3 Mar 2013
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I found this selection of music from Kings College Choir very enjoyable. Musically superb, emotionally fulfilling and exceedingly well chosen - these two CD's did not disappoint me in the way it has some other reviewers and I had no significant reservations over the quality of the recordings either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and rousing. 15 Feb 2013
By Paul Madge #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This two CD set is magnificent in terms of its content, both the music and the performance by The Choir of King's College, Cambridge are very enjoyable. The tracks have been well chosen - most of the 40 tracks are atmospheric and, in many cases, will be familiar. This is an ideal compilation for travelling in the car or listening to at home. The sequencing of the tracks is effective too - a nice combination of the relaxing and rousing.

I agree with one of the other reviewers on this page in that I think the technical quality of the recording could have been slightly better on some tracks and had more "presence" to do full justice to the music and choir. However, this is a minor criticism and does not really detract from the enjoyment of these discs. Overall though I'd recommend this compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars English music 10 Dec 2010
By JoAnn
Format:Audio CD
If you like English music, this is exactly what you have been looking for: Zadok the Priest, Lux Aeterna, Jerusalem, Abide with me, Nimrod and so on, all sung by the Choir of King's College Cambridge. What more could you ask for? If you don't know English music and would like a taste of it, this CD is also for you. You can't get a better introduction.
