|Jacob Epstein's Majestas in the nave|
at Llandaff Cathedral
The recording includes Stanford's Te Deum in B flat and Ye Choir of Jerusalem, Francis Jackson's Evening Service and the first recording of his Te lucis ante terminum plus music by Vaughan Williams, William Matthias, Richard Lloyd and Simon Lindley. The choir consists of 20 choristers and twelve gentleman (lay clerks and choral scholars). It is conducted by Richard Moorhouse, organist and master of the choristers, with James Norrey playing the organ. All profits from the disc go to African charities, and a further disc is planned for next year.
