WHITBOURN, J.: Missa Carolae / Choral Music for Christmas (Westminster Williamson Voices, James Jordan)

James Whitbourn is a GRAMMY®-nominated composer whose music is internationally admired for its direct connection with performers and audiences, The Observer describing him as ‘a truly original communicator in modern British choral music’. Carolae is a fusion of two great American and English Christmas traditions, with the Missa carolae at its heart. Whitbourn’s love of medieval musical language is shown through his crafting of original melody and skilful arrangements of seasonal favourites.
