Huddersfield Choral Society : The Hymns Album

Review: The Huddersfield Choral Society has an international reputation as the UK's leading choral society producing a unique and full-bodied 'Huddersfield Sound'. This disc features some of the nation's most loved hymns and we hope that you'll agree that no better expression of the joy engendered by a goodly number of voices singing these hymns may be found than in the grand forces of the Huddersfield Choral Society. Their range covers an unaffected, pure lyricism through to a vast, full-throated sound that might shake the rafters of the sturdiest church.
