A CD of soaring anthems by Thomas Weelkes, beautifully performed by Winchester Cathedral Choir and conducted by David Hill.
Weelkes (1576–1623) was an English organist and composer, who became Winchester College’s organist in his early twenties, later moving to Chichester Cathedral. He is best known for his madrigals and anthems, seventeen of which are collected here in this CD.
An evocative memento of a visit to Winchester Cathedral.
