Choral composer Matthew Martin is rapidly gaining an international reputation, and Faber Music is delighted to add three stunning new works to his roster, available to buy now. His ‘spikily dynamic style of composition’ (BBC Music Magazine) has led him to be commissioned to write for many prominent ensembles, most recently the Gabrieli Consort, the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, St John’s College and Clare College, Cambridge.
These three pieces are the newest additions to his list of works published by Faber Music and form part of the Faber Music Choral Signature Series.
Commissioned by The Oratory School, this congregational mass for unison voices is a joyful and uplifting setting, suitable for all voices and abilities.
A prime example of Martin’s exemplary choral writing. Combining complex harmonies and intricate, antiphonal rhythms, Martin has created a rich and sonorous setting of this sombre, mournful text.
Perfect for weddings and church services, this anthem describes the power of love and the strength of bonds made in marriage.
All works are available to buy now from fabermusicstore.com.
