Description

The magnificent sound of 400 voices, two brass bands and organ have been brought together on this this record to celebrate the 1900th Anniversary of the Founding of York by the Romans in 71 AD.

Each piece of music, drawn from the repertoire of the world’s most popular religious music was brought into millions of homes throughout Great Britain by Yorkshire Television’s Stars on Sunday programmes, and was recorded on the multi-track stereo by the huge York Celebration choir and two great brass bands.

These great and stirring works are conducted by Sir Vivian Dunn, a distinguished musician recognised as one of the leading brass band and choral conductors of our time–the holder of a golden disc, presented to him by Earl Mountbatten of Burma on the sale of one million long playing records.
