Drawing international media attention following their founding in 2014, the Girls' Choir of Canterbury Cathedral have quickly become leading lights in the British choral music landscape. For their first recording with Signum - led by their director David Newsholme - they draw on the rich catalogue of what have become British cathedral anthems from the 16th Century to the 20th, performing works by composers including Tallis, Byrd, Stanford, Parry and Howells. They are joined on this recording by the Men of Canterbury Cathedral choir, as well as organists Aidan Bawtree and Nicholas Wearne. Canterbury Cathedral's Girls' Choir, formed in 2014, sings at Evensong in the Cathedral twice every month, frequently with the lay clerks. The majority of the girls attend local schools in Canterbury and they rehearse each Wednesday evening. Their first performance at Evensong, on the occasion of the feast of the Conversion of St Paul, in January, was attended by more than 600 people and widely covered by the international press.
