With a number of performances of new and recent works in the past few months, I’ve received a number of excellent recordings recently. I am proud to be able to share them now.
In particular, the St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls Choir and their conductor Blanaid Murphy have just released their new CD Vox Feminina, a stunning collection of sacred music for upper voices by women featuring works by composers such as Judith Weir, Roxanna Panufnik and Sarah MacDonald, and my “O Sing Unto the Lord”. The piece was commissioned by the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney for the installment of Bishop Anne Dyer, first female bishop in the Scottish Episcopal Church.
The musicianship and sensitivity of these recordings is absolutely top-notch. The CD is available for purchase all the usual sources, and individual tracks are on YouTube.
Khoros Choir (London) and their conductor Patrick Allies have also just completed their recording sessions in Cambridge this month, which included my piece Mater Dei. Can’t wait to hear the final result – here’s a preview of the ensemble!
I’ve been thrilled to receive a number of stunning live recordings recently as well, including the recent performance of “The Devil’s Tower” by SACRA/PROFANA, and “Interrogations at Noon” and “The Angel with the Broken Wing” from my Failed Saints cycle by Ensemble Companio.
