Continuing their ongoing series with Resonus, the Saint Thomas Choir of Men & Boys, Fifth Avenue, New York and conductor John Scott release this compelling programme of choral works by Henry Purcell, which also features the acclaimed period instrument ensemble Concert Royal.

This collection of sacred works by Henry Purcell features some of the composer’s best-known choral works framed by the large scale works O sing unto the Lord, Z44 and the Te Deum in D major, Z232. Completing this collection is the organ Voluntary in G major, Z720, in a striking performance by John Scott.

'The singers do excellent justice to Purcell’s eloquent music while at the same time honoring Scott’s important legacy at Saint Thomas.'

'what’s most striking in these Purcell verse anthems is the quality of the treble singing. No surplus breath passes through a sound that has a lovely bladed focus – muscular and connected but never pushed so hard that it distorts or becomes raw.'
Gramophone

'The singers do excellent justice to Purcell’s eloquent music while at the same time honoring Scott’s important legacy at Saint Thomas.'

'The choir is large, with around 25 boys and 16 adults, but they sing with an admirable sense of consort and cohesion. [...] John Scott adds an organ solo, the lovely Italianate Voluntary in G, adding several impressively inventive ornaments'
Andrew Benson-Wilson (andrewbensonwilson.org)

'But this is a valuable record and an engaging recital, and a chance to hear Scott and his fine choir on peak form in Purcell.'
Planet Hugill

'These two CDs of more mainstream repertoire are also released by Resonus, continuing their output of fine recordings of the Choir of St Thomas, Fifth Avenue, under the leadership of the late John Scott. Both CDs make for repeated listening.'
Lark Reviews

'[...] it would be hard to beat Saint Thomas Choir and the late John Scott'
