Parry: Sacred choral music

St George's Chapel Choir Windsor, Christopher Robinson (conductor)


Choral music is of central importance in Parry’s considerable output. While most of his instrumental works have, at least for the present, lapsed into a sometimes undeserved obscurity, pieces such as his setting of Blake’s Jerusalem, and the coronation anthem I was glad, remain at the very heart of the English choral repertory, their nobility of character being discovered anew by each generation.
