Choral Signature Series Composers Howard Goodall is an EMMY, BRIT and BAFTA award-winning composer of choral music, stage musicals, film and TV scores, and a distinguished broadcaster. Howard’s setting of Psalm 23 and Love Divine are amongst the most performed of all contemporary choral works. His major works include Eternal Light: A Requiem and Every Purpose under the Heaven. The music of Morten Lauridsen occupies a permanent place in the standard vocal repertoire of the 21st century. In 2006, he was named an ‘American Choral Master’ by the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2007 he was awarded the National Medal of Arts, the highest artistic award in the United States, by the President in a White House ceremony, for his “composition of radiant choral works combining musical beauty, power, and spiritual depth”. Alexander L’Estrange is a British choral composer and arranger whose music is performed and celebrated throughout the world. His compositional voice is characterised by his background as a cathedral chorister and as a professional jazz musician. Add to that mix a First Class Honours Music degree from Oxford University, his passionate dedication to music education and his charismatic choral leadership and it’s no wonder that he has been dubbed “the ideal 21st-century musician” (Howard Goodall CBE). Matthew Martin was born in 1976 and studied at Magdalen College, Oxford and the Royal Academy of Music. He is regularly commissioned to write music for leading ensembles and festivals, most recently the BBC Singers, the Cardinall’s Musick, the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and St John’s College, Cambridge, the St David’s Cathedral Festival and the American Guild of Organists. 14 Faber Music Choral Catalogue
