CATALOGUE NO: GMCD 7201
York Minster may be England’s no. 2 cathedral, but its choir ranks rather lower. In this interesting collection of anthems by the Victorian church’s Romantic rebel, the organ is excellent, the boys’ sound good, the men’s less so, though Varcoe is wheeled on to boost the solos. Janet Banks
