This Sacred Choral Music is Magnificat!

Traditional Catholic composer Nicholas Wilton began writing sacred choral music in 1990, having previously composed mainly for the piano.

His first introduction to music was the Mozart and Schubert Lieder which his German mother sang to her children.

In his twenties he came to admire the sacred music of the sixteenth century Catholic masters.

He is delighted that the acclaimed choir Magnificat should be the first to record his music.

Sir James Galway wrote of this CD, in review, that:

"This is one of my favourite CD's. Masterfully written, beautifully sung. It brings me closer to God. I have given it as a gift to many of my friends."

BBC Music Magazine: "Nicholas Wilton's 14 short motets take their harmonic language straight from the 16th century. Expressive suspensions abound... simple but effective music, beautifully sung."
