This album, recorded in Salford Cathedral on 8th and 9th June 2023, is the first commercial recording of the Cathedral Choir. It was inspired by the great East window, which features on the cover, and aims to bring the listener right into the building, a place of sacred serenity and an escape from the bustle of Salford’s busy Chapel Street the other side of the West Door.

The album features music that has been written within the past few years by living women composers from across the UK, Australia, and Canada, the only exception being the two chants by the German composer Hildegard of Bingen, one of the earliest documented women composers in history.
