Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Dove's beautiful choral works have made him into a household name among professional and amateur singers alike. His writing is eminently approachable yet highly original. His music appears on cathedral music lists frequently around the UK, his distinctive voice and imaginative choice of texts creating inspirational works suitable for many different liturgical occasions. The Missa brevis is the most recent work to be recorded here and was commissioned by the Cathedral Organists' Association for their conference in Wells Cathedral in May 2009 and first performed by the cathedral choir under Matthew Owens' direction. The same forces have recorded it here along with a delectable selection of Dove's anthems.
