The four pieces on the World Premiere recording featured below span three decades of Giles Swayne's choral music. Their striking echoes of Latin plainchant, Tudor polyphony and traditional African music provide contrasting and complementary strands characteristic of this much-travelled composer. Expanding the offer, we have selected a survey of Naxos releases from recent months that demonstrate the endless variety and fascinating possibilities being explored by today's choirs and choral composers. For a limited time, take 20% off these geniuses of modern Choral music.
