Every now and then, a cathedral chorister appears with a such a refined and musical voice that the director of music says "I'll have to make a CD of this one." One such chorister in the early 1990s was Jeremy Budd, who was particularly fortunate to be in the Choir of St. Paul's Cathedral, meaning that his recording could appear on the Hyperion label.
"Hear My Prayer" is therefore a showcase for Budd, in that most of the works in the programme feature a treble solo of some description. The title work (and opening track) by Mendelssohn is better known to millions as the piece containing "O for the wings of a dove," and the rendition here is about as good as I've heard. Any former cathedral chorister that has sung this may admit to needing nerves of steel for the solo part: it occupies most of the piece and can easily sound shoddy if it is not sung with faultless intonation and expression. Budd exhibits those characteristics to perfection, however: he positively revels in the vast acoustics of St. Paul's, and is supported ably by the rest of the choir in what is a rivetting and beautiful performance. Visitors to the cathedral during 1991 must surely have been spellbound when this was on the music list!
The other awe-inspiring treble solo on the disc is the much-touted Allegri "Miserere." Since hearing recordings of this by A Sei Voci and the Taverner Consort, with their scholarly editions of the work, the version recorded here sounds somewhat bland, and it is a shame to point out to listeners that the top Cs in the solo sections are pure fiction: Allegri certainly didn't write them. That said, Jeremy Budd was obviously both willing and able to supply such high notes for this recording - they are spine-chilling and accurately placed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Choir, Excellent Soloist January 27, 2002
Verified Purchase
If you want to hear the sound of a very fine boy soloist, I can recommend this recording to you heartily. I must agree with the other reviewer that, of all the conventional (i.e. not scholarly) performances of Allegri's "Miserere" I have ever heard, this one is the very best. Jeremy Budd's beautiful voice simply soars on those high notes, and he hits the high C dead on. I have never heard another treble do as well on this piece. Budd's vocal talent is also on full display in "Ye Now Are Sorrowful" -- simply beautiful. The rest of the music is all lovely; the choir is in good form as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure Trove of great music July 15, 2007
Verified Purchase
I had bought this for Harvey's "Come Holy Ghost", a wonderful setting of the plainchant that captures the text. I was surpsied by all the tracks, the Ellegri just wonderful. As I have been sued to the Kings College version, I found this rendition actually better in some aspects, Jeremy Budd is terrific on this and other pieces. As also are the other soloists. Well worth the money.Hear My Prayer

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Miserere! February 5, 2001
By A Customer
This is the most fantastic recording of Allegri's "Miserere mei Deus" that I have ever heard, and the rest of the album is just as spectacular.
