CHOIR OF ST JOHN COLLEGE CAMBRIDGE George Guest
The Complete Argo Recordings

In almost a quarter-century of recordings up to 1981, Decca’s Argo imprint established St John’s College Cambridge under conductor George Guest as one of the leading choirs in the world, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their collegiate rivals King’s College Cambridge, but with a distinctly vibrant, less ethereal sound and with a broader European repertoire. The result: 42CDs, here proudly presented in their original jackets with extensive new editorial and photographs.

The complete recorded legacy on Decca of one of the most influential music directors of English Cathedral music.

42 CDs, mastered from the original tapes, and presented with original jackets.

Includes the first international Decca CD release of Langlais’ Messe Solennelle, Palestrina’s Missa brevis à 4, Flor Peeters’ Missa Festiva, Purcell’s Thy word is a Lantern, Z61, works by Casciolini, Gabrieli, Gesualdo, Banchieri, and two further CDs: 5 & 31.

Extensive booklet notes with photographs from the College’s archives and from George Guest’s personal family archives.
