AntiphonFormed in 2011, Antiphon has made Buckfast Abbey in Devon its most regular home for concerts and recitals. Initially, Antiphon performed three concerts a year, meeting on the day of the concert to rehearse and then perform. Today, the choir’s home is Exeter and concerts are given in the Cathedral as well as at Buckfast Abbey. Members of the choir comprise both full and part-time singers, many professional. Under its present Director, Matthew Cann, the choir now meets on a regular basis and enjoys performing a wide ranging repertoire of old and new music. Their reputation is well known and critically acclaimed in the West Country and beyond.

...AND THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE: CHORAL MUSIC BY MICHAEL WALSH

Antiphon, Antiphon Players, Matthew Cann (director)

...and the Greatest of These is Love - WHR049In their second album for Willowhayne Records, Antiphon presents world premiere recordings of three choral works by Michael Walsh. Two are sacred and one secular: an unaccompanied Mass of the Holy Trinity, a full-scale Requiem Mass, and The Way of Love: a setting of five love poems by the First World War poet Rupert Brooke, scored for choir and strings.

These works reflect the gentle character of the composer's style, steeped through nearly thirty years of singing in English Cathedrals.     More >>
