Orchestra: Worcester Cathedral Choir, Westminster Abbey Choir. Conductor: Christopher Robinson, Douglas Guest. Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams. The Choir of Worcester Cathedral under Christopher Robinson sings beautifully throughout, but their efforts are severely compromised by the acoustics of the venue (the booklet notes contain the texts but no information about composer, performers or where this disc was recorded - though it may be because what I have seems to be a reissue of the original recording), and the sound is really. woolly, flat and distant, which is a shame. This is a lovely collection of Vaughan Williams' choral works and hymns. Unfortunately, Chandos strikes again. The sound quality is very poor.

The Choir of Westminster Abbey is renowned worldwide as one of the finest choirs of its type. Comprising some thirty boys (all of whom attend the Abbey’s unique Choir School) and twelve professional adult singers (known as Lay Vicars), its main focus is to sing the daily choral services in the Abbey, as it has done for more than six centuries. It also plays a central role in the many royal, state, and national occasions which take place here, many of which are broadcast on television and radio. Its critically acclaimed catalogue covers a wide range of music including the complete Great Service by William Byrd, music by John Taverner and Christopher Tye, choral works by Elgar, Ireland, Bax and Finzi, Parry ceremonial music with Onyx Brass, Duruflé Requiem with Britten Sinfonia and, most recently, Missa Videte miraculum and other works by the Tudor composer Nicholas Ludford.
