Favourite Hymns from Oxford - Amazing Grace GCCD 4047

Product Description

The Christ Church quadrangle fountain shimmering in sunlight attractively adorns the cover of this collection of some of the greatest of all hymns. As Stephen Darlington says "hymns deal with weighty topics" and new arrangements (inc. also by Howard Goodall feature amongst these most spirited performances). Recorded Christ Church Chapel July 2004 in DDD sound.

Total time: 63:00

"There are many highlights. Nothing is overstated or outlandish, and the singing has a very pleasing polished and bright sound...When I Survey the Wondrous Cross is in a very pleasant arrangement by Howard Goodall. His setting of Morning has Broken is also fresh. Highly recommended."
Graham Scott - MusicWeb, 14/02/2005
