Gothic Voices - Mary Star Of The Sea - Choir & Organ

This welcome revitalisation of an iconic group is characterised by warmth of tone and beautiful blend. Their selection of Marian medieval monody and polyphony, arranged with the greatest care and taste into two parts expressing her heavenly and human attributes, includes Latin and old English texts, offering differently intimate sound worlds. Alongside glorious, delicately nuanced new works by the brilliant American Joanne Metcalf, including the magical Music for the Star of the Sea, and the affectionately sonorous Stond wel, Moder, under rode from Andrew Smith, here is a thoroughly engaging recording of impeccable clarity.
