The Westminster Cathedral Choir does a great job with these choral works, and the conductor, Martin Baker, never misses a step. The organist, Robert Quinney, does a good job, also. Martin Baker, Choir of Westminster Cathedral (Hyperion compact disc CDA67503) - Here is yet another superb reading. The atmosphere is remarkable, caught in warm and spacious sound with a touch of solemnity. Gerald Fenech in notes that "the Choir of Westminster Cathedral responds with a limpid beauty to the direction of Martin Baker whose patient enthusiasm is very evident in the ecstatic end-product. The two masses on this album are fine examples of enduring commitments in English choral tradition : The VW is, of course, the setting par excellence for that type of musical event. So is Judith Bingham's Mass, a work that reaches great heights-both in terms of spirituality and artistry.
