The BBC Singers continue their critically lauded and award-nominated series of composer-led recordings with a new disc of works by Master of the Queen's Music Judith Weir.
Recorded in the unique acoustic of the Temple Church, London, the BBC Singers are joined by the church's choristers and the contemporary music ensemble Endymion, in a retrospective of Weir's works drawn from a 25-year period.
"We start in the cathedral, with the densely spiralling alleluias of Weir's mesmerisingly beautiful millennium anthem, All the Ends of the Earth. The simpler textures of her Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis occasionally find the choir sounding harsh up high, but theirs is a vibrant sound, never bland." (The Guardian)
