Lux Aeterna
Winchester Cathedral Choir / David Hill

[ Virgin The Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Saturday 22 July 2006

David Hill conducts Winchester Cathedral Choir in a programme of sacred works for the new millennium

. Settings by John Tavener include Song for Athene, movingly sung at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, and As one who has slept, written for Winchester Cathedral in 1996. Arvo Pärt's Magnificat is serene and deceptively simple, while an earlier and no less anxious and questioning age is represented by contemplative settings from Thomas Tallis and Victoria.
