York-based chamber choir, The Ebor Singers, with the director Paul Gameson, make their Resonus Classics debut with an album of works inspired by the English Civil War and, in particular, the 1644 Siege of York. Based around the ''York'' psalms of William Lawes, this fascinating recording features a programme of music that may have been performed in York's historic minster around this time of huge political, social and religious upheaval.
