“This important release should be in every keen choral singer’s Christmas stocking.”
After landing straight in the Top 10 of the Specialist Classical Charts, Will Todd’s latest Signum CD release Choral Symphony No.4 ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ with the BBC Concert Orchestra and featuring Code Breaker by James McCarthy has received a glowing review from Gramophone Magazine.
“The harmonic highlight of the piece occurs in the fifth section (‘Away! Away!) at 1’27”, when there is the most beautifully melting moment any large choir could wish to relish.”
Specially commissioned by the Hertfordshire Chorus and conducted on the CD by David Temple, the work has been hailed as an “important addition” to the choral concert repertory.
