James Cook writes for voices, mainlya capella, in numbers ranging from four to forty-plus. This disc continues the survey of his music started with "Heaven’s Happiness" (CD 25023), written very much in the Anglican choral tradition, and ideal for skilled church and amateur choirs. All first recordings.
“Voces Oxonienses make a good case for the music”
“James Cook works within traditional tonal boundaries. Sincere and moving, unglamorous settings written within the accommodating
embrace of the Cathedral tradition… sung with total professional commitment”
“...much to admire and enjoy in this collection of pieces and in the exemplary performances that they receive… Anyone with an interest in [the English choral] tradition can safely and confidently explore this rewarding CD”
