Trinity Sunday at Westminster Abbey CD

Trinity Sunday at Westminster Abbey CD
Product Description:
This CD presents a sequence of music such as might be heard in the Abbey on Trinity Sunday. Trinity Sunday is the first Sunday after Pentecost.
Opening with the Abbey bells summoning the faithful, we travel through the three principal services of the day - Matins, Eucharist and Evensong - in a blaze of glorious music and atmosphere.
Alongside such old favourites such as Walton’s Jubilate and Stainer’s I saw the Lord, there is a new recording of Francis Grier’s astonishing Missa Trinitatis Sanctae—written for the Abbey choir in 1991—and a rare performance of Howells’s Westminster Service, the second of two settings of the Evening Canticles he made for the choir in the 1950s.
