This 2-CD anthology from the Choir of Men & Boys at St. Thomas Church, New York, Gerre Hancock director, features hymns, psalms, and organ music, moving through selections for the entire liturgical year from Michaelmas through Advent and Christmas and on through Lent, Easter, Pentecost and even �Ordinary Time,� giving a panorama of praise at its finest and most varied. The field of music ranges from ancient plainsong through the stirring hymns of Bach�s time, the Anglican chants of recent centuries, to a moving modern anthem, organ solos in the English pastoral tradition, and a toccata-rhumba of surprising brillance and panache.

HYMNS: Christ the fair glory of the holy angels; Who are these like stars appearing; O come, O come, Emmanuel; In the bleak mid-winter; Of the Father�s love begotten; Brightest and best of the sons of the morning; Glory, love, and praise and honor; The glory of these forty days; Now, my tongue, the mystery telling; He is risen! He is risen; Through the Red Sea brought at last, Alleluia; This joyful Eastertide; Hail the day that sees him rise; Come down, O Love divine; Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty; For the beauty of the earth
