Colin Mawby began his musical education as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral under George Malcolm. Mawby rose through the ranks of juvenile and adult assistant, eventually serving as Master of Music from 1961 to 1976. Mawby has written some uniquely effective music for the choir, and the macaronic anthem Iustus ut palma
combines its English and Latin texts with the same alacrity as that with which Mawby fuses the textures of choir, baritone soloist, and organ.
