The anthem is essentially an Anglican creation, setting familiar sacred texts to rich, complex music to help the congregation enter more deeply into prayer. It is still widely used as part of sung daily worship. This CD includes some favourite anthems, from composers including Edward Elgar, Hubert Parry and Samuel Wesley. It features the Winchester Cathedral Girl Choristers on several tracks in their first-ever recording.
