Notes & Reviews:

This is the newest release in Signum's series of composer-led releases with the BBC Singers. This project is the result of collaboration between the choir that began in 2002 and British composer Bernard Hughes. Hughes combines modern poetry by E. E. Cummings and Siegfried Sassoon with Norse Poetry in his compositions, which show aspects of both modern and ancient elements.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2016
A characterful performance.

Classical Ear, 20th July 2016
Boasting fine contributions by the BBC Singers, this rich survey of Bernard Hughes's choral music provides a decidedly moreish introduction to the London-born composer.
