This album brings together music by two English composers who are also good friends -and both born in East Anglia: Nicholas Barton in Norfolk in 1950 and Christopher Wright in Suffolk in 1954. Moreover, they share a similar musical language: largely tonal, if loosely so, rhythmically alert, transparently but dramatically scored and with a natural feeling for symphonic argument and growth, and a powerful sense of scale. "Mark Forkgen and his versatile chamber choir Canticum are obviously fully committed to Wright's music and have done him proud." (Choir and Organ)
