The reputation of England’s flagship Roman Catholic choir goes before it, and is well maintained here. The disc mixes the repertoire the choir is best known for – continental Renaissance polyphony – with English music of the same period: less familiar recorded territory for them, to which they add their own touch – a richer, creamier sound than the pure ‘white’ of most Anglican cathedral choirs, and more than a hint of Romantic expression.
