Vocal and choral music by
Lennox and Michael Berkeley -
recommended by
GEOFF PEARCE

'... thrilling performance.'

Stabat Mater - Sacred Choral Music by Lennox and Michael Berkeley. The Marian Consort. Berkeley Ensemble. David Wordsworth. © 2016 Delphian Records Ltd

It is very pleasing that this disc has been issued — Lennox Berkeley's music is not performed or recorded enough, particularly outside the UK, and this is a great pity. His output is large — over 230 works, and I know very few of them. I have played his Sonatina for Oboe and Piano, and have a recording of arguably his best-known work, A Dinner Engagement, but many of his other works, including the four symphonies, are unknown to me. I've heard recordings of a few of his son Michael's works, and believe these to be two major voices deserving so much more...
