    FLAME CELESTIAL
    Choral Music by David Bednall, Volume II
    Wells Cathedral Choir directed by Matthew Owens
    Jonathan Vaughn organ



    A second recording from Wells Cathedral Choir dedicated to the wonderful choral music of this marvellous young composer

    “Bednall has again entrusted this music to the Wells Cathedral Choir under Matthew Owens and they have not only done him and themselves proud, they have reinforced their current poistion as one of the UK's leading cathedral choirs; an absolutely magical performance of the Benedictus from the Mass sets the seal on their excellence... the Cathedral's acoustic (gloriously captured in this warmly atmospheric recording) infuses every bar, and the choir responds with both affection and towering authority.”

    Gramophone, September 2010
