The Baltic Exchange, London, presents, in partnership with Portsmouth Cathedral Choir, Malcolm Archer and the Convivium Singers, an original and exciting collection of anthems, hymns, part-songs and folk-songs celebrating the Exchangeís longstanding support of seafarers and Englandís rich, maritime musical tradition.

In commissioning Malcolm Archer to compose the Anthem for Seafarers, an anthem which draws on the well-known hymn 'Eternal Father Strong to Save', the Baltic Exchange continues its support for seafaring charities. Here is a collection of songs and anthems associated with the sea, beautifully performed by the Convivium Singers and Portsmouth Cathedral Choir.

Malcolm Archer is Director of Chapel Music at Winchester College, where he trains and conducts the Quiristers and Chapel Choir and teaches organ in the College. He has enjoyed a distinguished career in cathedral music, including posts at Norwich, Bristol, Wells Cathedrals and then Director of Music at St Paulís Cathedral in London. During his time there he directed the choir for several State services, including the Tsunami Memorial Service, the London Bombings Service and the 80th Birthday Service for HM The Queen, for which he was invited by Buckingham Palace to compose a special anthem, performed live on BBC1.
