Hyperions long series of St Pauls recordings is graced by an addition dedicated to music for Epiphany, a companion disc to Advent at St Pauls. In the Christian Church year, Epiphany is the period after Christmas commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the Magi, celebrated on 6 January. The programme embraces music from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, from Bach to Bingham, and includes many long-established favourites by Wesley, Cornelius, Howells and others.
Hurrah for John Scott and St Pauls, who with this wonderful CD remind all how glorious the Epiphany repertoire is every piece is approached as if it were the finest thing ever written, and joy is taken in rendering the simple beautiful let us rejoice at the richness of this programme --(Organists Review)
Luminous with a sense of goodness and well-being, brightest and best of choral records for the last many months a distinguished record --(Gramophone)

There are three Epiphany hymns ~ "Brightest and best of the sons of the morning", sung to a tune by Alwyn Surplice (not one I knew, but enjoyable), "O Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!" to the well-known tune, "Was lebet" and "The growing limbs of God the Son" to the tune "St.Chad" by Christopher Dearnley. Herbert Howells is represented by the entrancing "Here is the little door"; the best-known work is probably "The Three Kings" by Peter Cornelius.
I was reminded of my days as a Treble chorister by "From the rising of the sun" (F.A.G.Ouseley) which receives a lovely performance (and some great echoes!). "When Jesus our Lord" (Mendelssohn) deserves a mention for another inspiring work, which contains the melody "As bright the star of morning gleams", which Ivor Atkins later incorporated in his arrangement of "The Three Kings" (Cornelius).
There are extensive notes on the recorded works, as well as their texts. This is a very welcome issue, beautifully sung and well-recorded, which lovers of church music, old and new, will appreciate.
