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

Gramophone Award-winning choir Polyphony and their inspired conductor Stephen Layton appear set for further prizes on the strength of their latest Hyperion release, and anthology of choral works by William Walton issued to mark the composer’s centenary and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. This disc, which opens with Walton’s Fanfare for Elizabeth II and Coronation Te Deum, is distinguished throughout by Layton’s unwavering commitment to the highest artistic standards and his choir’s ability to live up to them. Hyperion is promoting the release as its disc of the month, backed by advertising in the specialist classical press and PoS material.
