Wells Cathedral Choir, Matthew Owens, Jonathan Vaughn (organ)
BINGHAM, J.: Choral Music;
Under the inspirational direction of Matthew Owens, Wells Cathedral Choir has made a specialty of the performance of contemporary sacred music. The choir has commissioned works from many composers including Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, James MacMillan and Judith Bingham. This album features first recordings of a number of Binghamâ€™s sacred choral works. The living relationship between the composer and the musicians is clear from the vivid, committed performances given by the children and gentlemen of the choir. Also included is an extensive work for solo organ, Christmas Past.
