Passiontide
Music for Passiontide & Lent


Conductor: Barry Rose

Organ: Gavin Williams


Guild Music GMCD 7131
 
Order from GuildThis disc is essentially a re-issue of the old 1967 Music for Passiontide by a new company. Guild Music have done a marvellous job of re-mastering the original analogue recordings but apparently it was impossible to bring the Allegri Miserere up to an acceptable technical standard and so the piece was left out. An additional bonus is some newly recorded organ music by Dupré, played by Jeremy Filsell.
