Resident throughout most of the year, the Choir of Westminster Abbey sings the daily services in the Abbey, as it has since its foundation in the late fourteenth century. Today, the Choir has a worldwide reputation which also encompasses its concerts, recordings, and broadcasts. On this album, the choir presents seminal works by three composers whose contributions to the Anglican choral tradition are rich in historical significance. Much of this music is inseparably bound up with national celebrations and commemorations appropriate to war, coronation, and royal marriage.
