More > travelling preacher, a literary doctor and a visionary teacher to tell side-by-side their versions of the last 24 hours of the life of Jesus of Nazareth - from the Last Supper in an upper room in Jerusalem to the hurried burial in a tomb guarded by the occupying forces in 1st-century Israel - and the even more extraordinary aftermath.

Glenn Gould: "I always said the most fascinating beautiful little piece in all of music is a hymn by Orlando Gibbons, by the name Thus Angels Sang. I couldn’t count the times I’ve... More > let these bars wander through my mind, or how often I’ve played them on the piano..." Gibbons’ exquisite tunes and rock-solid basslines for the first English hymnbook, Hymnes and Songs of the Church (published by George Wither with his hymn-texts in 1623), were written to be sung and played both at home and in church. In this practical and adventurous collection for choirs of all sizes and abilities (as on the acclaimed TONUS PEREGRINUS recording on Naxos 8.557681), Gibbons' music has been realized by Antony Pitts and Alexander L’Estrange in a variety of styles, interleaved with new English hymns by themselves (including 'There is a green hill') and two more Pitts brothers - James and John, and arranged in eight sequences following the Church’s liturgical year, each capped with an Amen. Also available in Large Format, and Hardback.< Less
