Back in July, I spent three wonderful and exhausting evenings in Exeter Cathedral recording a second album with Antiphon and Willowhayne Records. Willowhayne have just released it, and here’s what they say on their website:
In their second album for Willowhayne Records, Antiphon presents world premiere recordings of three choral works by Michael Walsh. Two are sacred and one secular: an unaccompanied Mass of the Holy Trinity, a full-scale Requiem Mass, and The Way of Love: a setting of five love poems by the First World War poet Rupert Brooke, scored for choir and strings.
These works reflect the gentle character of the composer’s style, steeped through nearly thirty years of singing in English Cathedrals.
Plus… autumn performances with Antiphon:
- Owain Park “Footsteps” with Tenebrae Choir, Exeter Cathedral, 15 September
- Faure “Requiem” in the context of eucharist for All Souls, Exeter Cathedral, 2 November
- Bach “B Minor Mass” with English Touring Opera soloists and orchestra, Exeter Cathedral, 10 November
