    EVEN SUCH IS TIME
    Finzi – Leighton – Howells – Walton
    The Choir of Christ's College, Cambridge
    Sidharth Prabu-Naik, Gabriel Harley organists
    directed by David Rowland

    This recording brings together virtuoso choral works by four of Britain’s most influential mid twentieth-century composers: Kenneth Leighton (1929–88); William Walton (1902–83); Herbert Howells (1892–1983); and Gerald Finzi (1901–56).

    Centrepiece of the programme is Leighton’s extended cycle for Lent and Holy Week Crucifixus pro nobis, together with Finzi’s large-scale anthem Lo, the full, final sacrifice and Howells’s poignant motet on the death of President Kennedy Take him, earth, for cherishing. There are also rare recordings of shorter works by these three composers together with three of Walton’s most popular a cappella choral works
    .
