About

Following in Signum's series of composer-led releases with the BBC Singers, this new disc represents the culmination of a collaboration between British composer Bernard Hughes and the BBC Singers that began in 2002. Combining modern poetry by e. e. cummings and Siegfried Sassoon alongside Norse poetry, Hughes combines ancient and modern elements into his compositions, ably performed by the BBC Singers under Paul Brough.

Bernard Hughes’s music has been performed at major venues in Britain and abroad and received a number of broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. He was runner-up at the 2009 British Composer Awards for the choral work The Death of Balder (featured on this recording).
