In quires and places where they sing, here followeth the anthem.’ This much-loved and oft-quoted phrase is found in the Book of Common Prayer amidst the rubric of the Offices for Morning and Evening Prayer, more often known as Matins and Evensong. It makes an apposite introduction to this disc of English church music, recorded to celebrate the 175th anniversary of St Luke’s Church, Chelsea.
