Salisbury’s girls choir, Britain’s first in an ecclesiastical institution (founded 1991), proves its maturity in these works, many of them commissioned by the cathedral. The girls sing with unalloyed sweetness and are technically secure, save some clipped phrase endings. An atmospheric recording gives a good sense of the building. Janet Banks
