Faire is the Heaven

William Henry Harris

National Youth Choir of Great Britain
Ben Parry (conductor)

Released 22 November 2023

Released on St Cecilia's Day to mark the celebration of the patron saint of music, the UK's finest young singers aged 18-25 bring a fresh, vibrant sound to Harris' beloved double-choir anthem. The piece bids farewell to earthly things, evoking the heavenly beauty of the celestial realm.

This is a poignant release for us as we say goodbye to outgoing Principal Conductor Ben Parry, whose artistic direction on this track remains noticeably faithful to Harris' original markings. Also involved in the production of this recording was our Honorary Fellow, John Rutter, who produced and engineered this track.
