For over fifty years the Chamber Chorus has been fortunate to attract the talents not only of performers, but also of arrangers and composers. This disc brings together some of the more notable of these to constitute a programme of both sacred and secular pieces, taking the group from the music of its founder Ronald Arnatt to the present day. With the exception of Te Lucis Ante Terminum, all tracks on this compact disc are world première recordings. The disc is accompanied by a booklet containing both texts and translations, together with informative articles on the composers and on the Chorus's conductor, Philip Barnes.
