Reviews

‘Finally Jerusalem itself comes as the culminating tableau, with the solidity of massed unison voices and the flaming chariots and swirling arrows of desire set ablaze in the orchestral score which Elgar wrote for it four years after Parry’s death. […] This is a sumptuous programme, and David Hill’s by no means meagre forces present it with a fine sense of style and occasion, vividly recorded too. There is not only the splendour of sheer amplitude but also a spring in the rhythm (as in Stanford’s Magnificat) and beauty of tone in the quieter passages such as the hymn from Parry’s Judith’ Gramophone
