In the label's first collaboration with overseas artists, EM Records is delighted to present the Nicolai Chamber Choir, a choral group associated with Stockholm Cathedral. 'A Garland of English Choral Works' ranges from early delights by Thomas Morley and Pearsall, through Herbert Howells's intense and moving Requiem, to Balfour Gardiner's beautiful 'Evening Hymn'. Of particular note are the choruses from 'Olivet to Calvary' by John Henry Maunder - a work that too long has lain overlooked and neglected, yet is now experiencing a resurgence of interest, especially in Scandinavian countries; and two part-songs by William Lloyd Webber, of which these are the World Premiere recordings.
