Features Bach's motet 'Lobet den Herrn alle Heiden', Byrd's 'Mass for Four Voices' and Britten's delightful 'Five Flower Songs' and 'A Ceremony of Carols'.

A Ceremony of Carols, Op 28 for Treble Voices and Harp (Benjamin Britten)
Press Quotes“...precise articulation enhances the lively Bach polyphony; suave melodic contouring highlights the elegance of Byrd's vocal lines and rhythmic precision and fine vocal blendings throw into sharp relief the spicy harmonies of Britten's delightful songs and carols.”
