Angelic Voices Sound of the Boy Treble

Nine British trebles feature in this Regis release showcasing the tradition of the boy treble. The collection is taken over a 25 year period from the Alpha and Abbey labels and covers many different musical genres - an essential purchase for lovers of vocal/choral music and for those interested in the English Cathedral Tradition. These tracks are not otherwise available.

This important collection not only includes a wealth of wonderful singing by boy trebles, captured between 1964 and 1989, but also gives the listener an opportunity to sample a tradition that is very much on the wane. The recordings were masterminded by harry Mudd MBE, a founder member of the campaign for the Defense of the Traditional Cathedral choir, and demonstrate the level of musicality and professionalism that presided among the boy trebles of cathedral choirs at the time.
