Description: A commission from the 1888 Birmingham Festival, Judith is a fine but forgotten example of the great English Biblical oratorio. Bernard Shaw’s negative review of it (Shaw was notoriously anti-religious and anti-musical establishment) probably helped make it vanish during the 20th century but it was praised and admired by Stanford, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Finzi and Howells. 2 CDs. Texts included. Toby Spence (tenor), Kathryn Rudge (mezzo), Sarah Fox (soprano), Henry Waddington (bass-baritone), Crouch End Festival Chorus, London Mozart Players; William Vann.
