From the young and dynamic Godwine Choir comes an attractive programme of works by Gustav Holst and Sir George Dyson. The inspirational, beautiful and powerful pieces featured include a number of World Première recordings: Dyson’s ‘The Seekers’ and ‘Reveille’ from ‘Three Songs of Courage’ of 1935; Holst’s ‘Love is Enough’; and Dyson’s ‘Nocturne’, ‘The Moon’ and ‘I loved a Lass’. The assured conductors Alex Davan Wetton and Edward Hughes produce wonderful results from the choir, bringing these overlooked gems to vibrant life.
ALPHA & OMEGA
This delightful and joyful disc presents all of Gustav Holst’s Christmas music on a single disc for the first time, including the World Première recordings of a couple of carols. The Christmas music ranges from much-loved examples such as ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ and ‘Personent Hodie’ through to the substantial ‘Christmas Day’. The carols are complemented by organ music by Holst – the Four Voluntaries, as well as an arrangement for organ of the ‘Scherzo’, written as part of the composer’s unfinished second Symphony.
O CREATOR SPIRIT
“Malcolm Hawkins creates a harmonious choral sound in the English tradition together with the fresh young voices of the Godwine Choir make these Spiritual performances both joyous and moving”
