All the cathedral classics are here . . . It's an evocative repertoire list, and one with plenty of opportunities for the cathedral's superb trebles to shine, both collectively and as soloists . . . it's the Victoriana that really stands apart; gilded and filtered into soft-focus loveliness by the cathedral acoustic . . . while Balfour Gardner's "Evening Hymn" surges thickly, gleaming rich as stained glass . . . Nathanial Morley leads both the Goodall and Mendelssohn's "O for the wings of a dove" with wonderful ease and musicality -- just one of a selection of excellent soloists . . . [and when the St Paul's Choir are joined by 50 choristers it is] a glorious, precise sound -- awesome in the truest sense . . .
