3.0 out of 5 stars An adequate rendition-Buy it for City of London June 30, 2005
By Telstar
Belshazzar's feast is far more electric in the Previn RPO recording, but this is worth considering for the fine reading of the little recorded In Honour for the City of London. This work, much in the vein of the excellent Te Deum, has many moments of real invention, and is worth hearing more often.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet. Nice buy for these pieces June 21, 2007
This is one of those CD's I search out off the beaten path, as it is 20th century (uncommon for biblical subjects), choral by a native British composer (an uncommon commodity in any century), and it includes material commissioned for a special purpose, in the 'In Honour of the City of London'. This CD is available for substantially less than other releases of the same works, and to my amateur ear, this performance is quite good, thank you. My only reservation, relieved quite a bit by the low price, is that it has less musical performance time than the average Classical CD these days. If you like 'old fashioned' rousing choral stuff in the tradition of Mozart's Requium, this is good listening.
