Sing Unto God! spans the breadth of the Liturgical Choir's repertoire, from the intricate Baroque motets of Viadana and Anerio to the melodic twentieth century setting of Psalm 23 by Matthews. Included here are choral standards such as Bach's cascading "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" and Mozart's brilliantly understated "Ave Verum Corpus." Other pieces are seasonally themed: a song for Epiphany by Mendelssohn and Victtoria's plaintive setting of the Lenten "O Vos Omnes." The compilation ends with Parry's "I Was Glad," one of the most famous cathedral anthems ever written.
