APRIL FOCUS

TWO CHORAL SELECTIONS FOR EASTER! Click on the link​s below to hear each piece.

Jesus, pro me perforatus sets Gladstone's Latin translation of 'Rock of Ages' to a lyrical melody, ideal for amateur choirs. More demanding, The Breaking of Bread reflects the Easter story of the road to Emmaus. Both works are on the CD In no strange land sung by Sonoro directed by Neil Ferris with Michael Higgins, organ, available from Resonus Classics 

Scores available from Composers Edition

TIMELESS FIGURE

The new collaboration with photographer Laurel Turton

'A 45-minute tour de force...imaginative writing for marimba, clarinet and viola...some striking textures...the vocal line being expressive and singer-friendly yet highly wrought.' - planethugill.com, 2020
