Parry: Songs of Farewell & works by Stanford, Gray & Wood CD

Current Stock:


Stanford’s eight-part Latin Magnificat was posthumously dedicated to Parry, whose own Songs of farewell are unmistakably valedictory in mood. Personal as well as musical associations run deep in this poignantly expressive programme, recorded in June 2019 at All Hallows’ Church, Gospel Oak.
