World premiere recording

Now in his early nineties, Francis Jackson remains one of the finest, best loved and most versatile church musicians of our age. The eleven works on this disc, none of them previously recorded, have all the colour, emotional depth and attention to structural detail that are consistent hallmarks of his style. Working closely with the composer, The Exon Singers bring their customary blend of virtuosity, intense commitment and subtle responsiveness to this portrait in sound of a very special composer.

In the 1960s few would have predicted that Peter Maxwell Davies would eventually write a set of Evening Canticles; yet religious texts have always been of fundamental importance to the composer, as this disc vividly demonstrates by bringing together sacred masterworks from both ends of his career. Tough, uncompromising and of surpassing beauty, Davies’ major contributions to the Anglican repertoire are given thrilling voice by these fearless champions of contemporary liturgical music.

Chastised for his 'excesses in life and conversation', Michael Wise was hit about the head and 'kill'd downright' by the night watchman in Salisbury Cathedral, robbing history of one of the period's most prolific and respected composers and St Paul's Cathedral of its forthcoming Master of the Choristers.This recording, the first dedicated to Wise's music, is testament to the more respectable music making that is Wise's legacy.

The Caius singers under Geoffrey Webber serve the music with an ideally informed and energetic rigour, their second volume of music from the Restoration.They take a break from that in July when they partner the choir of Kings College, London to record Shchedrin's The Sealed Angel.

It is easy to forget that our great English choral tradition was once silenced by Act of Parliament. The Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 ushered in one of the finest periods of English music, though the road to recovery for church music was a slow and difficult one. William Turner, then a precocious nine year-old, went on to become one of the best known composers and singers of his day. This premiere recording presents a cross section of Turner's sacred music, ranging from small-scale liturgical works to some of his grandest creations, the Te Deum and Jubilate in D.

Subcollection: Choral and Organ

For 32 years the Abbey School Choir sang daily evensong in Tewkesbury Abbey and one of their final services was captured for posterity by Delphian. In this recording swansong, the choir offers a treasurable memento of a uniquely English Office; complete with lessons and prayers, this sumptuous tapestry of Anglican jewels also includes the first recording of Gabriel Jackson’s refulgent new setting of the Evening Canticles. Reborn as Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, the choir was immediately signed by Delphian and has embarked on a series of much-lauded recordings.

Collection: Sacred Music

John Taverner brought the English florid style to its culmination and final flowering; his music is quite unlike anything written by his continental contemporaries and, viewed retrospectively, represents not only the culmination of one period but also the beginning of something new. In his debut recording with the critically acclaimed Edinburgh choir, Duncan Ferguson presents this music with forces akin to those of the 16th century - a small group of children and a larger number of men.The singers respond with their characteristic freshness, and an emotional authenticity born of the daily round of liturgical performance.

O splendor gloriae

The powerful imagery of the Ascension has inspired generations of composers, from Peter Phillips and William Byrd to Gerald Finzi, Charles Villiers Stanford and Olivier Messiaen. The first part of this recording is in the form of an Anglican service of Choral Evensong; this is followed by Messiaen’s organ work L’Ascension, performed by Matthew Owens.

The choral works on the disc all have particular associations with the Cathedral, and some receive their premiere recording here. From James MacMillan’s meditative Tremunt videntes angeli to the rich fabric of Richard

Allain’s Exon Service, the Choir of St Mary’s weaves a complexly beautiful sonic tapestry in the cathedral’s generous acoustic.
