Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Bingham, and the repertoire in this program reflects a cross-section of her themes and work both recently composed and newly arranged. Experienced broadcast performer Tom Winpenny is joined by the acclaimed group, The Dmitri Ensemble, for the atmospheric concerto Jacob's Ladder, while the rebuilt St Albans Cathedral Organ is an ideal instrument for works such as the improvisatory Annunciation I and radiantly charming Hope, recorded, as was all the music on this album, in the composer's presence.

Gramophone
... the music here reflects a composer fascinated by the church and its scriptures... the string scoring is highly accomplished, and there is a real sense of commitment behind Graham Ross's sharply focused direction... Tom Winpenny brings assurance with some adept handling of Bingham's complex organ-writing.

BBC Music Magazine
Tom Winpenny opens an illuminating window on Bingham's richly-coloured, programmatically-driven engagement with the 'king of instruments'... Given Bingham's exacting colouristic emphasis, it's as well that Winpenny knows the St. Albans instrument like the back of his hand, coaxing an array of voluptuous and apposite sounds. But he's also alert to the fluidity of her narratives, and, when called upon to do so, serves up virtuosic flair with incorrigible panache.
