James Whitbourn (b. 1963) studied at Magdalen College Oxford before working at the BBC as a producer, composer, conductor and presenter. He is currently Honorary Research Fellow of St Stephen’s House Oxford. His musical compositions span choral, film and television genres. One of his most significant works, Annelies, a choral setting of The Diary of Anne Frank, was recently recorded by Westminster Williamson Voices (Naxos 8.573070), and a recording of his shorter choral works for chamber choir, Luminosity (Naxos 8.572103), was recorded by the superb Oxford-based chamber choir Commotio in 2010. Festival Alleluia is a celebratory work that is propelled forward on a wave of excitement created by the flamboyant piano part, whilst the choir sings increasingly triumphant exclamations.
