New CD release: A Winter Breviary - Choral Works for Christmas

St Martin's Voices is delighted to announced their debut recording with Resonus Classics, a selection of contemporary choral works for the Christmas season. With settings of poetry from the fifteenth century to the present day, these new carols explore themes of winter snowscapes, the anticipation and contemplation of Advent, the Christmas story as seen by the women at its heart, and the joy of coming in from the cold to celebrate together.

It is available to listen now on all streaming platforms.

In a programme made entirely of premiere recordings, this album features works by Cecilia McDowall, Roderick Williams and Lucy Walker, among others. The album also boasts a major new carol suite by Bob Chilcott, with libretto by Georgia Way entitled Mary, Mother, which was premiered by the ensemble in 2022.

The full album was released digitally on Friday 20 October and physical copies will be available from Friday 27 October.
