All Saints' Choir is the semi-professional choir of All Saints', Beverly Hills. The Choir specializes in music of the Anglican cathedral and American Episcopal choral traditions and is equally at home singing the great masters of the European Continent.

The All Saints' Choir consists of twelve staff singers and twenty-five auditioned volunteers. During the twenty-seven year tenure of former Director of Music, Thomas Foster, the All Saints' Choir broad national acclaim through its recordings for Gothic Records, two tours of the East Coast of the United States, national broadcasts on Minnesota Public Radio's Pipedreams®, and appearances at conventions of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) and the Association of Anglican Musicians (AAM). Since Foster's retirement in 2003, the All Saints' Choir has continued to flourish under the direction of Dale Adelmann, supported skillfully by Associate Director of Music, Craig Phillips, who has served on the All Saints' staff since 1988. In July 2004, the All Saints' Choir drew enthusiastic reviews as one the featured choirs during the National Convention of the American Guild of Organists in Los Angeles.

This recording includes works for a cappella chorus and accompanied chorus, as well as works for organ plus other instruments. World Premiere Recordings! A stunning program of contemplative sacred texts set to some of the most beautiful singing we've heard. Slow, focused intensity creates a strong emotional response from many listeners, including us.  The Martin piece alone is worth the price of admission. With première recordings of new anthems by Craig Phillips and Roland Martin, this CD is also the first recording of the widely admired Choir of All Saints, Beverly Hills, under its new director, Dale Adelmann. Overshadowed by others in the first half of the 20th century, both Finzi and Howells have emerged as major composers of the period, deserving of their own places alongside Vaughan Williams and Britten. Howells’ Requiem in particular must be one of the greatest choral compositions of the century.
