We are so pleased to announce this year’s winners of the Sir David Willcocks Carol Competition. The judges chose three carols, which you can hear for the first time at our Carols at Cadogan concert on 20th December. The first prize in the 19 and over category is shared by Fernando Taberner and Thomas Neal and the 18 and under category winner is Christopher Churcher. Read why John Rutter, Jonathan Willcocks and David Hill chose these pieces.
We invited six brilliant, award-winning composers to write new works in answer to chorales from Bach’s St Matthew Passion. They had complete freedom to choose their text, and challenge and explore different musical styles. Whilst we’ve funded the commissions and recording sessions, we need your help to produce and release this recording, both online and as a CD, to reach the widest possible audience.
