Hughes: I am the song & other choral works

The BBC Singers and British composer Bernard Hughes have collaborated for over a decade, and this new album presents their finest work together. Hughes seamlessly fuses the modern and the ancient, both in his choice of texts and in his musical style. The album includes two large-scale works: A Medieval Bestiary and the intriguing Death of Balder.
