OUT NOW: Debut album of Choral Works
“This Hyperion release of mostly a cappella settings reports a highly gifted composer, Owain Park, his alma mater The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge doing him proud, Stephen Layton securing polish and beauty, the singers’ robust and well-blended sound captured with sumptuous bloom in its sixteenth-century Chapel.” ★★★★★ – Classical Source (September 2018)
