    organ, Simon Bell director

    ‘beautifully performed, and enhanced by an equal vibrato amongst the boys’ voices in superbly shaped phrases. ’
    Cathedral Music November 2018

    Tewkesbury Abbey is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The 15th August, is traditionally associated with the Feast of the Assumption, for which the music presented on this recording is selected.
    Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum is the choir of men and boys which sings the weekday Evensongs in Tewkesbury Abbey. The Abbey School and its choir was the brainchild of the late Miles Amherst; he had first visited the Abbey back in 1952, and was struck by the architecture and atmosphere of the building. It was over twenty years later that he founded the Abbey School and its choir. In the summer of 2006, the school closed, and the choristers made the transition to Dean Close Preparatory School in Cheltenham, where they are now educated.

    Critical Recognition for Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum on Regent:

    The choir is given appropriate presence to show their ensemble and vitality, and the idiomatic and inspiring organ accompaniments are recorded clearly whilst still allowing the total ensemble to be heard. Overall, the Abbey's superb acoustics can be experienced as an integral and supportive aspect of the whole.’
    Editor’s Choice, Organists' Review June 2016

    ‘Tewkesbury Abbey is more than fortunate to have such an excellent choir as this — as it in turn is to have such an excellent musician as Bell as its director. A fine recording of uncommon musical interest.’
