Description

This  recording from the Choir of York Minster and Robert Sharpe, captures this excellent choir in the spine-tingling acoustic of this great cathedral. The music reflects a continually-developing tradition, and offers the listener repertoire from the last hundred years, written specifically for York Minster and its Choir: settings of texts for Mattins and Evensong; anthems suitable for those services and for the Eucharist; and compositions for special celebrations and circumstances.
