A one-hour choral programme, with organ, could hardly be better constructed than this, and it all passes in a delightful blur that demands an immediate second playing. Tallis, Byrd, Mozart, Weelkes, Stanford, Dyson, Egil Hovland, something by Beaumont himself and a perfectly judged introduction of Jehan Alain’s Litanies, third of the Trois pièces pour grand orgue: it may look like a bitty programme, or self-consciously eclectic, but Beaumont makes it work and the voices cope with changes of idiom and register exceptionally well.
