Founded in 1836, the Huddersfield Choral Society has long been a major part of the town’s vibrant musical tradition. Under a succession of distinguished principal conductors and chorus masters it has developed an internal reputation as the UK’s leading choral society. Although enjoying a close working relationship with any leading professional orchestras and conductors, the Society is a independent and self-governing amateur choir, drawing talented singers from a wide area across Yorkshire and the north of England. This is Huddersfield Choral Society’s fourth release with Signum Records.


"A beautiful and dramatic performance of a work much criticised, but with an ever-enduring popularity, written by one of the most prolific and successful composers, music educators and church musicians of Victorian times. Here, what may look pedestrian on the oage leaps into life, with colourful singing from soloists and choir, and expressively detailed organ playing: a fine demonstration of Stainer’s skill in writing accessible music with universal appeal."   *****

Choir & Organ Magazine - March/April 2010

“The Crucifixion is a work of its time, but a performance as good as this one shows that its expressive quality is timeless.”   ****
