Robert Fielding

Charles Tournemire began work on his large scale set of 51 suites for organ in 1927 after many years improvising at the weekly Mass upon the chant propers used at St Clothilde, Paris. Beginning with the suites for Easter and Christmas, Tournemire began to present an eschatological portrayal of the mystery of redemption as it unfolds in the liturgical calendar.

No 28 - Sacratissimi Cordis Jesu (Le Sacré-Coeur de Jésus) op.57

Of a Rose

Click to order

Matthew Curtis and Tom Corfield

The first album of the colourful and memorable music of the increasingly popular music of Tamsin Jones, featuring the irresistibly catchy Noel: Verbum Caro Factum Est, contrapuntal tours de force (Praeter Rerum Seriem and Ave Maria), highly original harmonic writing and microtones (Of a Rose), riotous romps for the organ (Vom Himmel Hoch and Recessional), and also beautiful items from the Chichester Music Press catalogue.

'..a delight to listen to. The harmonies and the counterpoint are superbly blended and the whole listening experience is highly enjoyable. These modern compositions reflect in a wonderful way the best of the periods on which many of them are based.' - Jolyon Dodgson MBE.

'..a fascinating compositional style of intellect and delight..' - Jack Stone

Sarah MacDonald, Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir, Selwyn Chapel College Choir

A large collection of choral pieces by John Hosking, all of which are published by the Chichester Music Press. Sarah MacDonald conducts Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir and Selwyn College Chapel Choir, with soloist Olivia Hunt and organists Timothy Parsons and Alexander Berry.

4-star review in the Guardian: John Hosking has spent his life in the organ loft (St Martin-in-the-Fields, Westminster Abbey and the cathedrals of Lincoln, Truro and, currently, St Asaph). All that practical experience has given him a deep knowledge both of what works in a liturgical setting and of the choral tradition's rich repertoire. The ghost of Duruflé is evident in his beautiful Chester Service (with a cheeky reference to Messiaen's La Nativité du Seigneur along the way); Herbert Howells hovers over his Bangor Service, while A Royal Blessing could be by John Rutter. Yet for all these influences Hosking maintains his own distinctive voice, particularly in his impressive Requiem. (Stephen Pritchard)
