Precious Things: Choral Music by Bernard Hughes

GLOBAL RELEASE DATE: 27 MAY 2022

Devoted to Bernard Hughes's choral music and programmed in close collaboration between the composer and The Epiphoni Consort, this portrait recording reveals a composer for whom musical style grows naturally out of the provenance of his commissions and their chosen texts.

Himself a wordsmith, text setting and delivery are at the forefront of Hughes’s creative thinking, and Epiphoni, making a name for themselves in recordings of music by living British composers, are ideally suited to the delivery of Hughes’s diverse language, in performances that showcase their trademark luxuriant sound.

"Choral music as we rarely hear it - generous, light-footed, surprising. I hope these pieces will be heard more often"
