The Cambridge Singers - Faire is the Heaven: Music of the English Church

This collection of English hymns and sacred music is simply fantastic. I have always been a fan of choral works, but especially of religious choral works. Faire is the Heaven is a chronological compilation of religious music by English composers. It begins with the Latin rite and moves through the Reformation, Restoration, and on to the Anglican revival.

The Cambridge Singers carry each and every piece straight up to the heavens. Their harmonies are both precise and lush, which leaves every single hymn ringing in the rafters. All in all this is a very nice compilation of Anglican music, and I enjoyed every second of it.
