Just to add that this performance (recorded at St .Paul's Cathedral, London, on July 10, 1972) is also available on commercial CD, as part of the BBC Legends series; 2 CDs, catalogue no. BBCL 4062-2.
The performers are the New Philharmonia Orchestra & Chorus, and the soloists include, in addition to those listed below, the soprano Jenny Hill.
In many respects -- notably textural clarity -- this is a better performance than the one caught on Giulini's 1994 commercial recording with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, though the standards of recording -- and of choral singing -- are higher in the later version.
