Music in honour of the Virgin Mary

This recording, made in the architecturally and acoustically glorious setting of the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral by the twenty-eight mixed voices of the Cambridge Singers, gathers together twenty-one examples of the extraordinary wealth of choral music inspired by the Virgin Mary, from Gregorian chant to the 20th-century sounds of Gustav Holst, Herbert Howells, Pierre Villette, Igor Stravinsky, Giles Swayne and John Tavener.

"This is what music is, and this is what music-making means." Gramophone
