Notes and Editorial Reviews
Patrick Hawes has quickly established himself as one of the UKs leading composers, writing in a personal and thoroughly English style that has endeared him to the listening public. This new disc of choral and organ works centers on the mystery and beauty of the words of the Old Testament with stunning performances from Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thoms, alongside Patricks own choral group Conventus and the English Chamber Orchesta.
