15 Mar New CD Release features Florian with Mary Bevan
A new CD release from Nimbus records features tracks in which Florian accompanies talented young soprano, Mary Bevan, in recordings of two works by Sir Nicholas Jackson.
Nimbus records have recently released a CD (NI6301) featuring chamber and organ music by Sir Nicholas Jackson. Florian accompanies soprano Mary Bevan in recordings of Three Hymns (settings of Tantum Ergo and O Salutaris, along with the Song of the Drapers’ Company), and the song cycle Six Elizabethan Songs (setting words by Shakespeare, Herrick, Fletcher and Raleigh).
Mary and Florian gave the premiere performance of the cycle in the Drapers’ Hall in 2011. You can hear two short extracts from the CD on Florian’s audio page and find out more from the CD’s page:
“With Nicholas Jackson himself involved in the making of this recording we can assume authoritative performances all round. More to the point, all concerned have done their part to make it enjoyable… attractive and varied recording” Brian Wilson, musicweb-international.com .
