About

In almost a quarter-century of recordings up to 1981, Deccaís Argo imprint established the Choir of St Johnís College Cambridge under conductor George Guest as one of the leading choirs in the world, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their collegiate rivals Kingís College Cambridge, but with a distinctly vibrant, less ethereal sound and with a broader European repertoire.  The result: 42CDs, here proudly presented in their original jackets with extensive new editorial and photographs.

Mastered from the original tapes

Includes the first international Decca CD release of Langlaisís Messe Solennelle, Palestrinaís Missa brevis ŗ 4, Flor Peetersís Missa Festiva, Purcellís Thy word is a Lantern, Z61, works by Casciolini, Gabrieli, Gesualdo, Banchieri, and two further CDs: 5 & 31

Extensive booklet notes with photographs from the Collegeís archives and from George Guestís personal family archives
