The synthesis of Pearson’s architecture providing warm, resonant acoustics, ‘Father’ Willis’s triumphant accomplishment of 1887, and the balance of boys’ and men’s voices (13 of each) creates sounds at once easy and keen. Legato lines throughout the disc contrast with the deft agility apparent in The World’s Desire (Paul Drayton); another recent setting is the expansive Seek him that maketh the seven stars (Jonathan Dove) with its compelling ostinato textures and stellar inspiration. Combining classics such as Blessed City (Bairstow), God is gone up (Finzi) and The Twelve (Walton), this enviable recording is a tribute to the current strength of music-making at Truro.
