Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir released a new CD to coincide with its November 2013 Concert.
Available in the cathedral shop £11.99 Special online price of £8 including worldwide P&P.
The Guest is a selection of choral and organ music of Paul Paviour.
Paul Paviour is one of Australia’s best-known composers. His output is both substantial and varied. Recorded in Worcester Cathedral, this collection presents a broad overview of his work for smaller choir forces, including works written for a royal visit, the dedication of a new organ, carols for Chritsmas and Easter, and an organ piece based on Edward Elgar’s only psalm chant. Also included is his newest composition, The Morning Watch, especially written for Stephen Shellard and the Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir in 2012.
All artwork in the CD booklet is by local artist, the late Craig Letourneau.
