English Anthems from Oxford
The majesty and beauty of English choral anthems
John Harper leads the Magdalen College Choir in four centuries of church anthems by British composers.
“High overall standard… An astonishing achievement… These look back to the very roots of English church music… They bring a powerfully committed response from the Magdalen Choristers and the whole programme is superbly sung in what is surely an ideal acoustic.” (Penguin Guide, 3 Stars)
“This anthology strikes a blow for progress… Then English anthem comes of age at last.” (Gramophone)
