The result was a substantial and lasting contribution to 20th-century hymnody, which is celebrated in this recording. The Washington National Cathedral Choral Society follows their best-selling first volume of great hymns.  Booklet contains notes on the history of each hymn and texts.  Includes "In the bleak midwinter," "Rejoice, ye pure in Heart!," "Come down, O Love divine,":All my hope on God is founded," and "Lord of all hopefulness" among many others. 20 hymns for solo organ arranged and performed by Frederick Swann.

Sound from Heaven/Washington National Cathedral The Compline Choir The Choral Music of William Bradley Roberts / Choir of St Johns Lafayette Square
I Will Meditate/Compline Choir/Anderson
Our Price: $18.98 - includes Free Shipping!
This recording brings together a splendid tapestry of music from the Franco-Belgian tradition, including traditional Gregorian chant, monody from the Notre Dame Conductus which flourished in Paris circa 1200, and the medieval "Messe de Tournai." This music is paired with the excerpts from the Pentecost Mass for organ by Olivier Messiaen, the 20th century Roman Catholic mystic; also Messiaen's choral motet, "O Sacrum Convivium," and music from the Cathedral's 53-bell carillon. The worldwide revival of Compline, a late-night service dating from early Christian times, began with this choir and the vision of its founder, Peter Hallock. Today, hundreds of young people fill Saint Mark’s Cathedral (Seattle) every Sunday night to hear this choir, and they are joined by thousands who hear Compline over radio and the Internet. This recording honors the musical craft of Peter Hallock and Richard Proulx, who wrote much of the music sung by this choir since its founding in the mid-1950s. Composer William Bradley Roberts is well known in Episcopal Church circles for his tuneful melodies and popular liturgical music. The choir of St John's Church is featured in this first recording a series from the Washington National Cathedral which features new American choral music.

The second of this series of new American choral music from the Washington National Cathedral features the popular composer Stephen Caracciolo, whose works have been performed and broadcast by many groups nationwide, including Cantus. This is also the first recording of an elite new choral ensemble, Cathedra, based at the National Cathedral directed by Michael McCarthy. An American living in England, D’'Angelo’'s compositional style also blends the influences of Debussy/Ravel, Holst and Prokofieff with the neoclassicism of Hindemith. The program consists of a Missa Brevis and Evensong settings, plus organ interludes and voluntaries played by Scott Dettra. Gary Davison, a native of the Southwestern United States, has found favor with performers, critics and audiences alike for the idiomatic expression and freshness of voice in his writing. His primary focus is in the choral medium, for which he has earned recognition as one of North America’s leading composers in the refined Anglican choral tradition.
