    Editor’s Choice Gramophone July 2020
    '.. the Tewkesbury choristers have the edge, with their vitality of tone, clarity of diction and willingness to stir up the underlying dramatic impetus....Let us hear more Bairstow from these wonderful executants.’

    ‘The Abbey choir gives spirited performances and is absolutely superb in terms of blend, intonation, diction, and ensemble. Etherington's accompaniments could not be any better, and the balance between choir and organ is particularly good. The recorded sound beautifully captures the resonant atmosphere of this cavernous space... This goes into the favorites pile.’
    American Record Guide July/August 2020

    Sir Edward Bairstow (1874–1946) was one of the Britain’s most iconic composers of Edwardian sacred music. After holding posts in London, Wigan, and Leeds, he served as organist of York Minster from 1913 to his death, when he was succeeded by his former pupil Francis Jackson. He was knighted in 1932.
