How moving it can be to hear the crystal-clear voices of a boys’ choir. The Schola Cantorum of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, London, has a tradition of fine choral singing that dates back over a hundred years. These pure voices are heard here in a selection of works both secular and sacred, ranging from popular pieces from films to the heavenly beauty of the Allegri Miserere.
