Psalms and chants from the Anglican and Taizé traditions, plus two hymns, directed by Peter Chapman. This recording by Cantus Choro demonstrates Peter's love of the Anglican psalm tradition, his lively musicianship and care for phrasing and words.
Peter Chapman - choral conductor, singer and music teacher, achieved renown for his direction of the Choir of Canterbury Fellowship in Melbourne for 25 years. He began his singing career as a boy of eight, later studying at the Melbourne University Conservatorium of Music and at the Royal Academy of Music. While in London, he sang in the BBC Chorus and the choirs of Westminster Abbey and the London Philharmonic.
Peter Chapman’s enthusiasm and skill as a conductor have inspired countless young musicians, particularly Royal Society of Church Music choristers and students at Scotch College. This recording with Cantus Choro followed three CD recordings of favourite hymns from the Australian Hymn Book.
It demonstrates Peter’s love of the Anglican psalm tradition, his lively musicianship and his care for phrasing and words.
