Walton: Coronation Te Deum (CD Review - HMV, 2002)

This disc is a tribute to two anniversaries – the centenary of English composer William Walton's birth and the Golden Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth. Featuring Walton's Coronation Te Deum and a fine selection from his other choral works, the singing is quite extraordinary. Gramophone award-winning Polyphony and The Wallace Collection combine with breathtaking ability under the directorship of Stephen Layton. Recorded at Hereford Cathedral over three days, it also features that building's majestic organ.
