The West London Vocal Ensemble
In Dulci Jubilo
Carol and Anthems for Christmas

Paul Plummer, conductor

This splendid collection of carols, anthems and organ pieces that celebrate the season of Christmas was recorded at St. Stephens Church, Gloucester Road, London in November 2001.

The album also contains the very first recording of the church's magnificent new organ, orginally built by Norman & Beard in 1905 and completed by TW Fearn & Son in 2001.

As a result of the album being recorded in this location, you may be able to detect some slight interference from the church's external surroundings. We hope that this does not affect your overall enjoyment of the performances contained herein.

Our thanks to the clergy and staff of St. Stephen's Church and Southville Methodist Church for their help with this project.

Keith Murphy.
