Children's Choir Music: New London Children's Choir - SKEMPTON, H. / CORP, R. / BENNETT, R.R. / CHILCOTT, B. / RUTTER, J. / MAW, N. (Pigs Could Fly)

While children’s voices have been heard in church music for centuries, music specifically composed for young choristers is a relatively recent, and most welcome, development. As the attractive and diverse music by the fourteen composers represented on this delightful recording shows, children’s choirs now have a wealth of outstanding repertoire to delight, challenge and initiate them into the world of music. Founded by Ronald Corp, the Grammy award-winning New London Children’s Choir has performed in the UK, Europe and North America to critical acclaim and boasts impressive discography, including two recordings of music by Britten for Naxos (8.553183 and 8.557203).
