Mathias Ave Rex, This Worlde's Joie


Mathias Ave Rex, This Worlde's Joie


"Ave Rex is a set of carols, "Sir Christmas" being now by far the best known, and This Worlde's Joie a cantata in four movements, nearly 50 minutes long. Sir Geraint Evans, who gave the Elegy's first performance, sings with authority and dark coloration. The soloists in the cantata are excellent ... Willcocks and Atherton conduct with vigour and care for detail, and the recordings are admirably clean." Gramophone 'Key Recording' **** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
