About this release

The Angels of Creation commissions are a collection of organ works composed for and premiered by Sebastian Thomson. The project’s inception began with David Bednall’s Rhapsody, which was premiered at St Paul’s Cathedral in 2010. All subsequent commissions—Simon Whalley’s Festal Paean, Thomas Hewitt Jones’ Angels of Creation (from which the title of the project originates), Neil Cox’s Laudate, and most recently, John Hosking’s Fourteen Stations of the Cross —have been premiered at Keble College, Oxford. Additional contemporary works by David Briggs and Philip Moore compliment this recording.
