Francis Pott’s That yongë child, recorded here for the first time, is all the more stark by comparison [with works by Chilcott and Ben Parry]. It is treated to an unquestionably contemporary yet austerely beautiful setting of medieval words which will be familiar, this time from Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols. Pott’s setting features a solo treble, sung with clarity and poignancy by Hannah Lucas, the sound of the treble voice ultimately left magically alone over a long concluding organ chord.
