Brian: Symphony No. 1 The Gothic

Add To Wish List + £30.99 - Out of stock

On 17 July 2011 over 800 performers gathered in London's Royal Albert Hall to give a rare performance of Havergal Brian's Symphony No 1 in D minor''The Gothic'. Tickets for this Prom sold out within 24 hours, and so it gives us great pleasure to make this live recording available to all. It's a pretty phenomenal work. Responding to the challenge set by Sir Henry Wood, the composer has thrown just about every known orchestral instrument into the mix, then adding a double chorus of over 500, plus children's choirs, for an hour-long Te Deum'the church's blazing Hymn of Thanksgiving'which makes up the symphony's finale. Whether or not you were lucky enough to be there on the night, this is a recording not to be missed.
