About

Celebrating his 80th birthday in 2016, the English musician Colin Mawby has made a significant contribution to the musical life of the Catholic Church in the UK and further afield, a fact recognised in 2006 when he was created a Knight of the Order of St Gregory the Great by Pope Benedict XVI “in gratitude for past and continuing services to church music”. Mawby was a chorister at Westminster Cathedral where he subsequently became Master of the Music in 1961. As a composer, his extensive output includes 24 masses, five song cycles and a large number of settings for choir. Mawby’s compositions feature a wide variety of styles and sonorities as is demonstrated in the repertoire on this CD.
