Review quote

Stanford's choral music is one of the glories of the English church. Here at last is a beautifully-chosen anthology of his finest anthems which will enrich the repertoire of choirs everywhere. Those of us who already know Stanford's choral music will rush out and buy this collection. Those who don't, should. * John Rutter * In all, this book makes a fine addition to any music library, and the works in it deserve to be better known. Indeed, there remain many more of Stanford's smaller-scale works that are relatively unknown, and this book leaves us wanting more. * Dave Clark, Music and Liturgy Summer 05 *show more
