Spiritually at home in the liturgy and fine choirs of High Church Anglicanism, John Ireland wrote much loved hymns and carols throughout his life. A fluent Edwardian style can be heard in earlier works, such as the Stanford-influenced Te Deum and the Communion Service.

The anthem Greater love hath no man took on affecting resonance when sung in memorial services during the First World War, and the ravishing Ex ore innocentium movingly responds to the agony of the Crucifixion in a rich, post-romantic musical language.

Also included are four unaccompanied carols.
