The first five recordings were made on 18 April 2013 at St John-at-Hampstead Parish Church in London. This was a private session in which only these five tracks were recorded. They now serve as my current demo material. I was accompanied on the piano by Matthew Martin and Dave Hinitt produced, engineered, and edited these recordings. Matthew Martin is one of the UK's most exciting young composers and you can learn more about his work here.
Jacob's Ladder, arranged by Stephen Darlington
This recording comes from a disc entitled 'Treasures of Christ Church' and was recorded by Christ Church Cathedral Choir in Merton College, Oxford in March 2011. It was released for sale in November 2011 and more information, including a link to purchase the CD on iTunes, can be found on the Christ Church Cathedral Choir website here. This recording is made available by permission.
I recorded this piece during a live recital which took place at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford on the 29th of May, 2010. Soprano Emily Atkinson and I gave a complete performance of Hugo Wolf's Italienisches Liederbuch, equally sharing its 46 songs. We were accompanied by James Martin. There has been no editing and the equipment used was not of the highest standard.
Bach's St Matthew Passion
Another live recording, this track comes from a performance in Symphony Hall, Birmingham on Good Friday, 10 April 2009. Ex Cathedra performs either Bach's St Matthew Passion or Bach's St John Passion every year on Good Friday and on this occasion it was recorded live in concert and releaesd for sale. In this performance, a new English translation by Nicholas Fisher and John Russell was premiered.
