An English Coronation Recording Launched

In July 2018 about twenty five members of the Schola spent three amazing days at Ely Cathedral recording a CD with the Gabrieli Choir and Orchestra, directed by Paul McCreesh.

The CD, released last Friday, brings together music from three twentieth century coronations and includes many of most beloved works of all British choral music, including Handel's Zadok the Priest and Parry's I Was Glad. The Schola trebles were featured in Walton's Coronation Te Deum in particular and three boys also sang the solos in Vaughan Williams O Taste and See.

The CD has received numerous Five Star reviews and is set to join the long tradition of notable recordings by McCreesh and his remarkable Gabrieli musicians.
