In 1986, the Schola Cantorum of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School in London recorded an album of classic English hymns, under the title “Firmly I Believe”, under the direction of Anthony Pellegrini and with organ by John O’Keeffe. The album was re-released as a CD in 2006, on the “Erase” label. Thanks to the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School for giving us permission to share the music on-line at
