Owain Park - Choral Works
Recorded 4-7 July 2017 and 12 January 2018. Released September 2018.
“It is inconceivable that these pieces could be performed better; the choral sound is sumptuous, the detail immaculately nurtured by Stephen Layton and the absolute precision of pitching and balancing a joy to behold.” – Gramophone Magazine
As his teacher John Rutter notes in the booklet: “the music of Owain Park defies neat classification. He belongs to a generation of young British-born composers who are no longer shackled by ‘isms’…rather, he has allowed his imagination to be nourished by music of many styles, traditions and periods.” This landmark recording of music by a former Organ Scholar was made under the supervision of the composer.
