Parry: Songs Of Farewell / Westminster Abbey Choir
Label: harmonia mundi
George Purves (treble) Westminster Abbey Choir, James O’Donnell
"Stanford's eight-part Latin Magniﬁcat was posthumously dedicated to Parry, whose own ‘Songs of farewell’ are unmistakably valedictory in mood. Personal as well as musical associations run deep in this poignantly expressive programme from Westminster Abbey Choir.
