Centuries of Roman Catholic tradition underpin this recording of the liturgy of the Mass and Vespers in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, based on Gregorian chant and the glorious polyphony of Victoria. The Gentlemen of St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Sydney, are professional singers and their devout and radiant voices illuminate the text to make it an unforgettable experience, enhanced by the discreet organ accompaniment of Matthew Martin. Whatever your belief, I defy anyone to be untouched by this. To borrow a phrase from a popular children’s film, this will take you to ‘infinity and beyond’: it is an uplifting experience.
