11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Richard Gillin on 10 Mar. 2008
Format: Audio CD
The Cambridge Singers have managed to produce one of the most sublime, peaceful yet uplifting choral CDs of recent years.

The first disc alone would be worth the very reasonable asking price for this CD, chock full of wonderful harmonies that wrap themselves around each other leading even the most harrassed of individuals to calm by the end of a handful of tracks.

But it is the second disc which excited me most. I fondly remember singing compline each Thursday night in my college chapel as a student by candle-light. Whilst this disc can't quite bring to life the smell of gently burning wax, it can still induce the same effect as singing compline itself - a prayerful, devotional and restful way to end the day. Recordings of this service are hard to come by, other than perhaps a few discs in latin. This is a superb rendition of what is, in essence, the 1928 Prayer Book version.

Recommended for all, whether you're just looking for a superb choral disc or have a fondness for the service of compline itself.

The Cambridge Singers are great with peaceful, but not morose CD.

The first disc is well worth the price for this CD, full of wonderful harmonies very calming. Heard lots of folk like compline and can see why. This is a good way to end the day.

Great choral disc. They rival the Sixteen

This recording is absolutely outstanding, and the 2 CDs represent excellent value for money. The Office of Compline on CD 2 provides a calming, serene way to close the day and will help any listener to go to bed resting in Christ's peace. I agree with a previous reviewer that repeated hearings will enable it to reach your soul and perform its magic! The Reader, the Precentor and the Choir perform with crystal clarity, and not a single word is lost from the sublime text of the Office.
