The Nativity Star

Publication date: September 2015

David’s latest choral anthology has just been published by Cadenza Music. ‘The Nativity Star’ brings together 18 choral pieces – sacred and secular – for the Christmas season, written by some of the most prominent composers working today. Many of the works have been especially written for this anthology, which encompasses a variety of texts, moods and styles, for both a capella and accompanied voices.

This inspired collection provides church and concert choirs with an invaluable source of otherwise unavailable contemporary gems in the choral repertoire.

Recent but unpublished works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Cecilia McDowall, Russell Pascoe, Carl Rutti, Andrew Toovey and Roderick Williams.

Especially composed works by Diana Burrell, Martin Butler, Joe Cutler, Edward Gregson, Christopher Gunning, Stuart MacRae, John McLeod, Stephen Montague, Alasdair Nicolson, Edwin Roxburgh, Errollyn Wallen and Raymond Yiu.

‘Quality music from top notch composers. There is much to delight listeners and inspire performers here, either in concert hall or church’ – Choir & Organ magazine
