Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In celebration of Queen Victoria's 80th birthday, 13 leading composers and poets collaborated on a collection of part songs. Published in a limited edition of only 100 copies, this superb sequence provides a fascinating snapshot of the British musical renaissance on the eve of the 20th century.

"The professional choir here is small, in contrast to the first (partial) performance for Queen Victoria, which was sung by 250 voices. Some of the effects would certainly be different with a large chorus. All of the songs are unaccompanied... Recommended for its historical interest as well as the fine singing." -Classical.net
