The founder of Westminster Cathedral, Cardinal Herbert Vaughan laid great emphasis on the beauty and integrity of the cathedral's liturgy. Initially, he determined there should be a community of Benedictine monks at the new cathedral, performing the liturgies and singing the daily Office. This caused great resentment amongst the secular clergy of the diocese, who felt they were being snubbed. The choir continues to thrive under the current Master of Music, Martin Baker, who has held the post since 2000. Terry gave the premières of music by Vaughan Williams (whose Mass in G minor received its liturgical performance at a Mass in the cathedral), Gustav Holst, Herbert Howells and Charles Wood; in 1959 Benjamin Britten wrote his Missa brevis for the choristers; and since 1960 works by Lennox Berkeley, William Mathias, Colin Mawby and Francis Grier have been added to the. repertoire.
Martin Baker’s first disc of Palestrina with Westminster Cathedral Choir was highly praised across the world. Here follows another delicious disc of Palestrina, this time dedicated to Christmas, the main work being the stunning Missa Hodie Christus natus est-one of Palestrina’s most popular works. VaughanWilliams Mass in G Minor & Judith Bingham Mass. VaughanWilliams's Mass in G MInor has been described as the first "English" Mass setting since the sixteenth century and the time ofTallis and Byrd. Baker entices some of the most wonderful singing from his choir here while Robert Quinney and Houssart positively revel in their virtuoso interplay. It almost goes without saying that Hyperion's recording captures the full effect of Maxwell Davies' astonishing writing' Gramophone.
Westminster Cathedral Choir. Ralph Vaughan Williams Composer. Martin Baker Conductor. Judith Bingham’s Mass is free of this: the balance of choir, organ and (important third factor) building is perfectly satisfying. On return to the Vaughan Williams, one turns up the volume and finds that the ears have become adjusted; it’s not so bad after all. As suspected, comparisons confirm that there is a gain to be set against this feeling of loss. The perspectives of the Mass are deepened, the contrast illuminated between full choir and solo quartet, and the antiphonal effect of the double choir clarified
