The world-renowned Westminster Choir and Joseph Flummerfelt along with organists Joan Lippincott and Ronald Arnatt, give absolutely stirring reditions of some of Westminster's best-loved hymns and anthems. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this recording over and over again. It serves as a beautiful, musical tribute to the legacy of fine church music at Westminster Choir College.

I bought this CD for one major reason. It has the song "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need" on it. The reason that song is so powerful to me is that I heard the Children's Choir at the National Cathedral sing it on TV on September 14th, 2001 - the day of the national day of prayer and mourning for 9/11. I wanted to find a version of the song on CD and this seemed to be the only one I could find. If you like choral music though the rest of the CD is great.

This is a reissue of a 1990 album (consequently a modest 57 minutes in playing time) by the Westminster Choir under its longtime director Joseph Flummerfelt. It is not British/Anglican style hymn performance--my own preference--but basic American, with a surprising amount of unison singing, which is kind of a shame. When the choir sings a cappella, and/or softly, the sound is quite beautiful. Performances are certainly not bad, but often seem more dutiful than inspired, though the group does get more lively with "How Firm a Foundation." Descants for the sopranos or organ are mostly eschewed, and verses are dropped from nearly every hymn. Other than the stated theme, there seems to be no pattern to the arrangement or choice of the selections included. (One assumes they were the conductor's favorites, as some of the anthems are pretty obscure.) While the sound is good, words are not always as clear as they might be. All sung texts are provided in the booklet, but no credit for either words or music to the hymns. Ah well; you pays your money, and you takes your choice.
