    All bells in paradise
    Carols from Guildford Cathedral
    Choir of Guildford Cathedral
    Paul Provost organ, Katherine Dienes-Williams director

    "The selection here is refreshingly unhackneyed, coupling familiar Willcocks arrangements of old favourites with modern carols - some true gems... Paul Provost is an admirable organ partner to this first-rate choir, which delivers excellent performances under Katherine Dienes- Williams."

    International Record Review December 2013

    "Katherine Dienes-Williams has presented a recording that shows that cathedral music is alive and well in provincial communities just as it is in chapel choirs. It is an interesting array of composers who are important int he choral world at the moment, including Will Todd, Stuart Nicholson, Bob Chilcott and Robert Causton."
    Gramophone December 2013

    Old and new alike there is not a weak link to be heard in over an hour of seasonal music.          Cross Rythmns December 2013

    An exciting collection of seasonal music for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany from the boys and men of Guildford Cathedral Choir, directed by Katherine Dienes-Williams.

    Includes some favourite Christmas hymns, together with recent carols from Matthew Owens, John Rutter, Will Todd, and Bob Chilcott. New carols from Richard Causton, Martin Read, and Philip Moore receive their first recording on this disc.

    Since its inception in 1961 under Barry Rose, and under its successive directors Philip Moore, Andrew Millington and Stephen Farr, the Choir of Guildford Cathedral has won an international reputation for its singing. Katherine Dienes-Williams took over the reins and became the first female Organist and Master of the Choristers in an English Anglican Cathedral in January 2008.

    This is Guildford Cathedral Choir’s first recording on the Regent label.
