“A superb choir marks its 50th anniversary in style with this disc of music that it has commissioned over the years. Even choral buffs will find new discoveries here, most of them exquisitely sung. ****”
BBC Music Magazine, July 2017

To mark their 50th anniversary The Exon Singers have collected their favourite pieces here – together with three specially written items – in the form of an extended service of choral evening prayer, without spoken word. Over the years the Exon Singers have received considerable recognition for their commitment to commissioning and recording new works from some of today’s most exciting composers.
