5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful, 21 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A hauntingly beautiful progress through Lent to Passiontide and Easter. Coming from a different tradition, much of the settings were new to me - and a striking reminder that the Church of England can hold its own against the Church of Rome when it comes to choral celebration of this most dramatic time of the Church year. The Sir Edward Barstow 'Lamentations' was a stunning setting of Jeremiah's words, sung with immense feeling and making the hair stand up on the nape of the neck with the rendition of the closing verse of each stanza: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, return unto the Lord thy God". John Sanders' 'The Reproaches' were, quite simply, breathtaking - the most arresting opening of any version of the 'Improperiae' that I have ever heard, and taking off from there. This is a thrilling album - an extraordinary and moving musical and spiritual experience.
