“It was a pleasure to work on Fisher of Men and we enjoyed giving the first performance. There is much drama in the piece, particularly in the way the parts intertwine, and there is very effective word-painting. The vocal lines seemed to stick – which is always a good sign. I would recommend other choirs consider performing this work.”
Matthew Owens, Master of the Choristers, Wells Cathedral
