Praise To The Holiest
As a former Master of the Music at Westminster Cathedral and Choral Director of Radio Telefis Éireann, there is little that Colin Mawby does not know about choral writing.

Here he is at his most approachable, with a 40-minute cantata for soprano soloist, chorus and organ.

This warm and mellifluous work, easy to learn and wonderful to hear, includes three well-known hymns for the audience.

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.
