Choral Concert: Blossom Street - MACMILLAN, J. / DUGGAN, J. / GRAINGER, P. / CAMPBELL, H. / TURNBULL, S.M. / BURKE, P. / ANDREW, K. (Down By the Sea)

Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe (Naxos 8.572868), Blossom Street explores a wide-ranging sequence of British folk song settings for choir, with a particular focus on the nautical. The repertoire embraces pioneers in the rediscovery and arrangement of folk songs such as Vaughan Williams, Grainger and Warlock, adds little-known gems by Holst and Bairstow, and also introduces vibrant new additions to the repertoire from contemporary composers, including James MacMillan and Judith Bingham and the conductor herself.
