Sacred and Profane. Hymn to St. Cecilia. With Delius, Elgar, Vaughan Williams
- Apple Music
From Elgar’s Part Songs (1904) to one of Britten’s very last works, Sacred and Profane (1975), here are some of the most beautiful and best-loved pieces in the English a capella repertory, many of them rarely recorded. All the composers here show the instinctive response to poetry, be it Shakespeare, Tennyson or Auden, so characteristic of the English tradition.
This title was released for the first time in 2002.
