Ex Cathedra, Milapfest, Jeffrey Skidmore

One of the UK’s most lauded composers, Roxanna Panufnik celebrates her 50th birthday with a new release of her previously unrecorded choral music, performed by leading British choir Ex Cathedra under Jeffrey Skidmore. Known for her interest in world music, the programme includes performances from Indian arts organisation Milapfest on Unending Love, as well as a recording of Child of Heaven: Dawn Chorus III – a new commission from Ex Cathedra that sets a Hymn to Dawn from the Rig Veda.

Roxanna has written a wide range of pieces, which are regularly performed all over the world, including opera, ballet, music theatre, choral works, chamber compositions and music for film and television. This album follows the 2017 release of 99 Words (SIGCD519), combining works by Panufnik and Sir John Tavener.
