  • Description

    Apocalyptic walls of sound cascade around the Gothic vaults of Saint-Eustache in Paris as Stephen Layton and David Briggs unleash, respectively, the full power of a top-notch Trinity Choir and the mighty van den Heuvel organ of 1989. Trinity College Choir / Stephen Layton - Anthems, Vol. 1 (CDA68434):

    "Followers of British church music will snap this refulgently sung recital up, and await eagerly its successors." – BBC Music Magazine; Recording 5 STARS, Performance 4 STARS

    "ecstatic dynamic singing with sensitive, orchestrally coloured accompaniments and an unerring sense of architectural balance" – Gramophone

    "Stephen Layton has selected some thrilling pieces and his choir, which is on tremendous form throughout, sings them wonderfully. Their performances are alive to every nuance in the music and technically the singing is beyond reproach." – MusicWeb International
