I have owned this CD for about 15 years and it is in my top ten desert island discs. The fervent, disciplined signing of this great choir in the late 1980's under it's then Master of Music, David Hill, (try listening to his unsurpassed Victoria Requiem from 1988, also on Hyperion) and the excellent Hyperion recording make for a CD of beautiful, contemplative music to treasure. All the motets, etc on the disc are dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Thank goodness the record company have re-released this CD . Buy it before it disappears!
