Notes & Reviews:
Making many of Bernard Rose's works available for the first time, his son Gregory Rose conducts the award-winning artists on this new release. This album marks the centenary of the conductor, trainer and composer. Rose was one of the mainstays of English choral music in the second half of the twentieth century. Rose's compositions occupy an honorable place within the mainstream of the cathedral tradition, being both grounded in the past and leaning gently into the future and speaking its language of stylistic restraint and understated passion.
