Britten: Choral Music – Gramophone

Jeremy Backhouse’s firm, clear direction pays handsome dividends and the flawless ensemble and perfect tonal blend he achieves from his singers results in a fine account of Rejoice in the Lamb. Particularly impressive is the extraordinarily compelling effect achieved through some outstanding dynamic control. This new release distinguishes itself with a first-rate performance of the little-heard late (1974) work Sacred and Profane.
