Format: Audio CD
The team of C. V. Stanford and Herbert Howells has prevailed in the venue of British choral music for more than a century. Howells studied under Stanford, and both composed and performed through many productive decades. This recording from 1992, now released by NAXOS in the U.S., presents canticle settings, anthems, a Requiem, sacred songs, and hymn settings. The accompanying booklet explains thoroughly the background of the composers and their music.

Spanning the 19th and 20th centuries, these prolific composers shared their training and talents throughout their careers, inspired by their religion. John Rutter directs The Cambridge Singers, which he established in 1981. The selections are light and glorious, true to the style of both composers. The melodies are flowing and airy, some with organ and others a capella. Any selection would provide a satisfactory example for a local chorus to follow when learning an anthem.

The "bookends" of this collection are most memorable: Soprano Caroline Ashton provides a lilting portrayal in the opening Magnificat in G, and the audience can easily feel the overwhelming joy of Mary at the Annunciation. The concluding hymn "All My Hope" begins with the choir in unison, then alternating with women and men, concluding unison with the Rutter descant. The songs "When Mary" and "Long Ago" convey a sweet innocence not heard frequently enough in the harsh 21st century. Additionally, the "Nunc dimittis" spotlights the skill of the tenors to smooth and even effect.

Organist Wayne Marshall shows the organ of ancient, exquisite Ely Cathedral to excellent advantage through the use of colorful stops and pleasing registrations. The organ never overshadows the chorus, but provides substance and strength to the vocal performance.

It's important we have access to excellent recordings of 'niche' music such as this gem. While the Stanford works are middling in my view, these recordings of the Howells make this CD one of the most important in my collection. Of particular merit are the Howells' Requiem and the final track of the hymn sung to the tune Michael.

This is a solid, if uninspired, rendering of some lovely English choral music. The actual selection of pieces is very nice. I would not have started the CD with the Stanford Magnificent in G. Although Caroline Ashton is a fine soprano, her solo on this work leaves much to be desired. It seems as if she is trying to achieve a pure English treble sound where the warmer sound of a female soprano is called for. After all, this is Mary's song!
All in all, I would still purchase the CD again. The Howells Requiem is nicely done, as is When Mary Thro' The Garden Went. Not a bad introduction to some fine English composers.
