“This striking survey of music by Henry Aldrich reveals him to be a significant figure in 17th-century English musical life, with a characterful compositional voice. The Cathedral Singers of Christ Church bring this neglected music back to life in great style, with energy and commitment.”
Dr Stephen Darlington MBE
“Nonsuch Singers and conductor Tom Bullard have done a fine job of giving a new spin on the piece, with sparkling contributions from soloist Joanna Forbes L’Estrange and pianist John Turville. The choral timbres are vibrant and engaging and the energy of Mass in Blue shines through in spades.”
Will Todd Composer

About Convivium Records
Convivium Records (est. 2009) is committed to working with exceptional artists and composers to record and share their music.

Convivium Records involves musicians and composers in all decisions relating to their projects, from initial discussions about a new album, to recording, distribution, promotion and marketing. The label’s ambition is to exceed the expectations of their clients by creating recordings that reflect their true potential. At the heart of Convivium Records is a dedicated team who work together to bring their specific areas of expertise to each project as required. Read more
