About the album
The composer Patrick Hawes has established a reputation as one of the most popular contemporary English composers working today.
This new disc of choral and organ works centres on the mystery and beauty of the words of the Old Testament, with stunning performances from Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and Patrick’s own choral group Conventus, as well as accompaniment from The English Chamber Orchestra.
