Vexilla Regis

Vexilla Regis

Westminster Cathedral Choir and Buckfast Abbey are delighted to announce the release of their newest recording (and their first on the Ad Fontes label), Vexilla Regis: A sequence of music from Palm Sunday to Holy Saturday. This disc was recorded in Buckfast Abbey in March/April 2019, and is available from the Cathedral Gift Shop and to download. 

Ad Fontes is a record label founded by Buckfast Abbey dedicated to presenting recordings of the finest sacred music. Given its roots within the Roman Catholic Benedictine tradition, the label specialises in choral and organ music drawn from that rich heritage, with a focus on the Choir of Buckfast Abbey and the new Ruffatti organ. The name of the label is taken from the Abbey’s motto, Psalm 41: Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus (Like the deer that yearns for running streams, so my soul is yearning for you, my God).
