Much to my loss, I have come (relatively) late to English Choral music; it really is wonderful. Listen to the "glory be" after the magnificat and nunc dimittis, its ecstatic soaring music, as religious music should be. The music reminds me of the final trio in Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss. And yet the music could not be more different. Much of this music is very gentle and contemplative. A "must" for those interested in modern English choral music.
