    Westminster Cathedral Choir do it again

    I've had this CD for a few years and it's one of my favourites - fantastic. For any Renaissance music fans out there it's a must - the choir are stunning under James O'Donnells's direction and Joseph Cullen is sensitive and aware as accompanist. The choral blend is spot on and the CD mixes well known pieces (like the Tallis Salvator mundi) with some less familiar ones.
