Cathedral Choir ‘best yet’ CD released
Truro Cathedral Choir has won many plaudits for its singing
in the past but its latest CD release, Peace on Earth, is set to
be a best seller.
A spectacular new album of choral music has just been released by the
renowned choir of Truro Cathedral - the fourth volume of its kind over the
last three years. This new release, entitled Peace on Earth on the Lammas
label, is an attractive selection of both sacred and secular music by the
famous sixteenth century English composer, Orlando Gibbons.
Robert Sharpe, Musical Director, is delighted with the younger members of
the choir, “A feature of the recording is the variety of solo voices on show,
including a number by the boys of the cathedral choir. Their superb singing
helps make this the best CD recording yet from the choir.”
Also featured on the CD are four delightful organ solo pieces played by
Robert Sharpe on the beautiful chamber organ in the cathedral. The album
would make an attractive Christmas present and is available in the
cathedral shop as well as in all good record shops.
The Cathedral Choir is performing with the Three Spires Singers on
Saturday 17th December at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the Hall for
