  • The triumphant mood of the Restoration required much glorious liturgical music, and the Abbey was home to some of the greatest composers and performers of the age.
    This recording presents music likely to have been sung by - and in some cases, almost certain to have been written for - the Choir of Westminster Abbey during the late 1670's and early 1680's.
    They sing four canticles from the compendious Service in B flat by Henry Purcell, together with psalmody in reconstructed contemporary style, and anthems and motets by Purcell and his contemporary John Blow, who famously both preceded and succeeded Purcell as Organist of the Abbey.
