Customer Review

on 31 December 2013
This album is quite simply sensational. If you are searching for a wonderfully eclectic collection of stunning, uplifting music performed by a world-class choir, then you have probably found it. (My other recommendations would be "Illumina" by New College, Oxford, and "Inspiration" by Canterbury Cathedral). "Light Of The World" was recorded not long before the Abbey School closed for good, but fortunately they have been re-born as the equally excellent Schola Cantorum. The boys are now educated in Cheltenham, but choral singing at its finest is still very much alive at Tewkesbury, which is, by the way, a huge, cathedral-sized building and one of the grandest and most interesting anywhere. One of the most striking features of this CD is the utterly perfect sound of the boy choristers, in particular Andrew Swait. How on earth can a 10-year old boy sing like that? I was once a choirboy myself, but these trebles are in a totally different league! However, I must be fair and say that the adult members of the choir are similarly brilliant and that this ensemble as a whole would be very difficult to beat. I would go as far as to say that even if choral music is not really your thing, then this might just be the disc that changes your mind!
