Fans of classical and choir music can rejoice at a wonderful new recording from the Choir of King's College, Cambridge. England, My England is a two disc compilation of "essential English music" offered by EMI UK which is sure to delight every Anglophile!

Some of the tracks included are Ave Maria, Psalm 23, and of course, the the Hallelujah Chorus by Handel. Both ancient and modern songs are included. The songs were recorded by the choir in their chapel, which provides a unique experience for the listener.

Many of the songs included have ties to great events in English history, such as Song for Athene, played at the funeral of Princess Diana.

This is a lovely compilation by a matchless group of singers celebrating all that is great about England!
Final Verdict for England, My England: Five Gherkins, for being a moving and uplifting tribute to a great country
