New CD from Westminster Cathedral

A new recording by the Choir of Westminster Cathedral always occasions great joy.  In July 2010 it was my very good fortune to have been in London when the choir sang Victoria's Missa de Beata Maria Virgine for the Solemn Mass.  A subsequent search for a recording of this beautiful setting was to no avail.  Little did I know that it was being preserved on disc by the very same choir for release in due course - and what a pleasant surprise!

Hear samples of the recording here and here.
