    After the Sabbath
    The Choir of Birmingham Cathedral
    David Hardie
    Marcus Huxley

    ‘...the 73 minutes flew by in what is a most enjoyable and proficient release.’

    'One senses real enthusiasm in the singing, together with an attention to detail that Marcus Huxley brings to the performances. The choir blends very well together, with variety being achieved by using just upper voices or lower voices for a few of the pieces. ’
    Cathedral Music November 2017

    This recording was inspired by a unique collaboration between Tony Iommi (lead guitarist of Black Sabbath),  the Dean of Birmingham, and the Cathedral Choir, gifting the download-only track, How Good It Is to the City of Birmingham, released in January 2017.

    This new disc follows that with a collection of favourite anthems for the church’s year, and includes three works written over the last twenty years for Birmingham Cathedral and here receiving their first recording.
