CD-14 Pilgrimage to the Christ Church

The Choir Of Downing College Cambridge

Tranquil yet uplifting, the simple compositions sung by the Choir of Downing College Cambridge touch the soul. Recorded live in Christ Church at Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem, the melodies and voices radiate a purity of heart and a depth of devotion that usher in the presence of the divine. Sung in English and the original Latin, these chants have a powerfully soothing and healing effect that will linger long after the last note is sung.
