Drawing on works for choir and organ out of Great Britain, Exalt combines this with two NLC commissions premiered over the past several years. Great Britain has an impressive, long-standing tradition of choir and organ music for the daily Evensong liturgies all across England, such as those offered at King’s College, Cambridge, and Westminster Cathedral, London. Some of the “Top 10” from this genre are included in this new recording, such as Stanford’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in A; Britten’s Te Deum; and Matthias’ Let the People Praise Thee, composed for the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana. Aaron David Miller, the organist featured on this new recording, is brilliant at the organ, bringing out a full range of effects, melting into one voice with the choir.
