Highlights in the hugely varied anthems abound, from the sumptuous sound of Blessed are all they- transcending its scandalous backstory- to the delightful evocations of dancing in Do Not Repine and the wistful sheen of mystery in We Praise thee, O father- these performances glimmer with all the yearning, devoutness, and splendour of the age.
