    York Minster is the greatest medieval church in northern Europe. Here, the greater Festivals of the church’s calendar are celebrated with music tailored to the theme of the Day, and sung by the Minster’s magnificent choir, under the direction of Robert Sharpe.


    This new recording, the first in a projected series, presents Epiphany Sunday at York Minster – the  ‘twelfth night’ after Christmas Day, marking the pilgrimage of the Three Kings, ‘Magi’, or Wise Men, to the infant Jesus. The three services of the day - Matins (‘Morning Prayer’), the Eucharist or Holy Communion, and Evensong (‘Evening Prayer’) - are sung with a selection of the celebratory music that might be heard in the Minster on Epiphany Sunday.


    In addition to Widor’s well-known large-scale Mass setting at the Eucharist, and famous canticle settings by Walton, Dyson and Howells at Matins and Evensong, there are new works receiving their first recording from David Briggs, (an Epiphany carol commissioned by the Minster in 2012), Philip Moore, and Richard Shephard.
