June 8th, 2016 - CD review: Essential Listening!
FAVOURITE CATHOLIC HYMNS *** [Essential Listening]
Choirs of the Diocese of Leeds · Herald HAVPCD 397
Just so there is no confusion with its Anglican counterpart, this delightful CD has come from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Leeds which claims to have the largest church music programme in the UK involving 2,500 children. There are 43 school choirs plus at least 13 more specialist choirs for boys, girls and mixed voices, as well as a semi-professional adult choir. Along with a couple of adult choirs this CD comprises the crème de la crème: eight different auditioned choirs singing a total of 26 Catholic hymns, including ‘Sweet Sacrament divine’, ‘Daily, daily’, and Bernadette Farrell’s ‘O God you search me and you know me’.
