'Hurrah for John Scott and St Paul's, who with this wonderful CD remind all how glorious the Epiphany repertoire is. Let us rejoice at the richness of this programme' (Organists' Review)
'Luminous with a sense of goodness and well-being, brightest and best of choral records for the last many months' (Gramophone)
Hyperion's long series of St Paul's recordings is graced by this latest addition dedicated to music for Epiphany, a companion disc to 'Advent at St Paul's' (CDA66994). In the Christian Church year, Epiphany is the period after Christmas commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the Magi, celebrated on 6 January.
The programme embraces music from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, from Bach to Bingham and includes many long-established favourites by Wesley, Cornelius, Howells and others.
