Quick Overview

Grand Endings
Instruments: SATB
The hymn arrangements in Grand Endings are intended for those special occasions and festivals when something particularly splendid is called for. Each consists of a choral setting of the penultimate verse and a short organ introduction to the last verse: this has a special descant marked with a fine choral conclusion. Colin Mawby writes, 'These arrangements should be sung with joy and vigour; choir and organist should uplift the congregation and create that wonderful sense of the memorable and numinous.'

Colin Mawby (b.1936) is a prolific choral conductor and composer.His vocal writing is widely acknowledged to be masterly and his music inspirational. As a conductor, he has worked with the London Mozart Players, the Wren Orchestra, Pro Cantione Antiqua, the Belgian Radio Choir and the BBC Singers. He has been Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral, London, Choral Director at Radio Telefís Éireann (RTE) and artistic director of Ireland's National Chamber Choir. On his retirement from the National Chamber Choir in 2001 he was appointed Artistic Director Emeritus to the choir.
