Simply Stunning...

Simply stunning. That pretty much says it all - rarely do you come across a disc full of warmth, magic and beauty. Recorded in the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral with its resonant acoustic, Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort have come up with a real treat for the ear. The centre piece of the album is the Requiem by Herbert Howells which is by far the most moving performance of this work that I have heard. It is a beautiful interpretation of an extremely deep and powerful work. Also featured are two settings of 'Drop, Drop, Slow Tears' by Orlando Gibbons and William Walton. Songs of Farewell is a collection of wonderful music by composers from Gibbons to Dove, all of whom have something in common - the ability to craft music for mourning and consolation with such emotion and conviction. Rarely does an album capture the emotion of such music leaving the listener having witnessed something of an experience. Enjoy.


This is a really beautiful album, recorded in a lovely acoustic. There is a real sense of space and the singing is superb. I hope heaven is like this!
