This is the Day – Music for Royal Occasions – Elin Manahan Thomas, Andrew Lucas,

The Cambridge Singers, Aurora Orchestra, John Rutter

This new album recollects and celebrates some of the choral music heard on royal occasions during the lifetime of HM Elizabeth II, and includes John Rutter’s celebratory royal wedding anthem, This Is the Day, written for the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in 2011. Newly orchestrated specially for this recording, it reminds us of the event that captivated the attention of the nation last year.



                      Performance *****     Recording *****

""...The Cambridge Singers, outstandingly fresh and communicative throughout under John Rutter’s expert, energising direction, excel particularly in a superbly bouyant, incisive performance of the ’Choral Dances’ from Britain’s Gloriana. In the quieter, more introspective Holy is the true light by William Harris they maintain a laudable internal balance and unanimity of purpose ... this is a vitually unimrprovably collection."

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - September 2012
