Rupert Gough's first recording with Royal Holloway Choir, the 'sacred banquet' of music spans the 16th to 21st centuries. It includes Arvo Pärt’s Magnificat, Holst's Nunc Dimittis, and pieces by Byrd, Bruckner, Stanford and Weelkes. The title track is Gabriel Jackson's setting of O sacrum convivium.
careful and accurate... they blend perfectly, they shade sensitively, they appear to work with like mind towards an agreed ideal of choral sound.
What more can one ask for?
The mixed choir of Royal Holloway College makes a truly fabulous sound under the direction of Rupert Gough. The title track... is a serene vehicle for these beautifully pure voices. (The Times)
