Biographies of composers


NB some links to works will take you external websites. 


 I meant what I said on twitter about this being the most influential series since Carols for Choirs.  Every cathedral and major parish church in the land with a choir should have copies – and that’s just for starters.               Jonathan Manners, BBC Singers 


 We are thrilled that our volumes are used around the world! We are extremely grateful to David Drury, (conductor and oragnist), Brooke Shelley (soprano), Anna Sandström (soprano), Josie Ryan (soprano), Janine Harris (mezzo soprano) and Sam Allchurch (conductor and Director of Music at Christ Church St Laurence, Sydney,  Australia) for donating their time and skills to record some of the works from this volume. Their recordings are available to listen to here
