The Ebor Singers & Paul Gameson (conductor)
York-based chamber choir, The Ebor Singers, with their director Paul Gameson, make their Resonus Classics debut with an album of works inspired by the English Civil War and, in particular, the 1644 Siege of York.

Based around the 'York' psalms of William Lawes, this fascinating recording features a programme of music that may have been performed in York's historic minster, around this time of huge political, social and religious upheaval, with music from William Byrd, Thomas Tomkins, John Hutchinson, William Child, John Wilson, Henry Lawes and George Jeffreys.

'The Italianate chording of George Jeffreys’s How Wretched Is The State was immaculately smooth, and the soprano soloists – Moira Johnston and Katherine Harper – were fluent in Matthew Locke’s verse anthem, How Doth the City Sit Solitary. But the pièce de résistance was Tomkins’s splendid eight-voice setting of Psalm 86, O God, The Proud Are Risen Against Me.'
