"An outstanding release on all fronts; and the one to have, even if you already own any of the other Leighton releases."
- MusicWeb International

"Editor's Choice ... the two Services on this disc are magical, with a yearning lilt that takes them beyond their upfront indebtedness to Walton, that the choir handles deftly."
- Gramophone

"... James Oxley is a plangent soloist ... Christopher Robinson's choir is on excellent form throughout, with especially clear diction. An atmospheric recording helps make this an outstanding contribution to Naxos's valuable series from St John's."
- BBC Music Magazine

This collection of Leighton's sacred choral music showcases the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge directed by Christopher Robinson, who present these rich, lush harmonies featuring subtle dissonance, rhythmic energy and a lilting, angular lyricism. The programme includes the two contrasting Canticle Settings and the Easter Sequence scored for boys voices, organ and trumpet, performed here by soloist Crispian Steele-Perkins.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
