Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Dr. Arthur Wills was Director of Music at Ely Cathedral from 1958 to 1990, and also held a Professorship at the Royal Academy of Music in London from 1964 until 1992. His secular music includes seven song cycles, and an opera "Winston and Julia," based on Orwell's "1984." He has composed extensively for the organ, and his ensemble works include a Concerto for Strings and Tympani, a Concerto for Guitar and Organ, and the Symphonic Suite "The Fenlands," for Brass Band and Organ. The works on this CD, reflecting that wonderful British tradition of choral music, obviously display Wills' strong personal feelings for the exceptional performers involved. Wills' organ music can also be found on the Guild CD "Wondrous Machine!"
