Howard Skempton: The Cloths of Heaven

Best known as a composer of exquisitely quirky miniatures for solo piano or accordion, Howard Skempton has in recent years developed an equally strong affinity for the choral medium. The Exon Singers’ programme includes a new Missa brevis composed especially for this recording, alongside songs and shorter choral and organ pieces surveying Skempton’s output over the past quarter-century.
