Their name liveth for evermoreTheir name liveth for evermore
Recorded in June 2015, this CD is based on Choral Evensong as heard in Rochester Cathedral. In this period of national remembrance of the centenary of the First World War, it seemed appropriate to take Remembrance as a theme for this recording, but also as an act of worship where we can hold in our hearts and memories those who have gone before is and have meant so much to us.
The music is evocative and often reflective and includes the last movement of John Rutter's beautiful and haunting Requiem
as well as his ravishing and less well-known The Lord is my light and my salvation and
a world premiere recording of Remembrance by Arthur Wills.
The CD is available from the Cathedral Welcome Desk, as well as by post by emailing the music department.
