Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the latest CD from Chandos marking the 50th anniversary of the death of this great British composer. Bax is not usually thought of as a choral composer. His seven works for chorus and orchestra are undeservedly neglected and indeed were almost completely unplayed until the concerts celebrating the centenary of his birth in 1983. Much of the music is only available on this CD. Recorded in: Studio 7, New Broadcasting House, Manchester 17 April 2003 (Nocturnes) Recorded in: Leeds Town Hall 8 & 9 March 2003 (other works) Producer(s) Brian Couzens (Executive) Ralph Couzens (Recording) Mike George (Recording) Sound Engineer(s) Stephen Rinker Denise Else (Assistant: Nocturnes) Tim Archer (Assistant: other works) This is the latest CD from Chandos marking the 50th anniversary of the death of this great British composer.
