Description

2019 was the 40th anniversary of the admission of women to Christ’s College, Cambridge, and the college choir marked this anniversary with the release of the first CD devoted to the music of Christ’s College alumna, Annabel Rooney. It was also Regent’s first release debuting the works of a female composer.

Annabel Rooney writes beautifully crafted and imaginative works in an expressive modern English style, setting traditional texts in an illuminating, colourful, and creative way; a blossoming talent and an original voice.
