GODWINE CHOIR WETTON HUGHES JORYSZ
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. Founded in 2014 by graduates from the University of Cambridge, the Godwine Choir has established itself as one of London's most dynamic and versatile chamber choirs. The choir is based in St. George the Martyr, Borough, where they sing Eucharist every fourth Sunday of the month. They give regular concerts at leading London venues as well as further afield, with recent performances in Sherborne Abbey, St Matthew's Northampton, and Brussels Cathedral. In 2016, the choir was shortlisted for Choir of the Year.
