Advent at St Paul's

Share

'This truly rich advent feast is performed wonderfully well on all counts and can be highly recommended'
(Organist's Review)

A chance to experience the vibrant and stimulating music written for the preparation season of Advent. From the joy of Laetentur caeli by Byrd to the rigour and power of Britten's Hymn to St Columba this is a disc to stir the soul.
