Ralph Allwood, Precentor and Director of Music at Eton College, conducts the Eton College Chapel Choir in this new recording made at Eton College Chapel.

Playing the organ, David Goode, Head of Keyboard at Eton College, brilliant organist in residence at First Congregational Church in Los Angeles, accompanies the choir and plays organ soli (Roger-Ducasse Pastorale and Messiaen "Institution du Saint-Sacrement" - Livre du Saint-Sacrement).
