Choral Music from Novello and Chester Music (UK)
Matthew Berry (UK)Jonathan Wikeley (UK)

Novello and Company, an imprint of Music Sales, is home to many famous choral editions, including anthologies, octavos, choral pops and easy choral arrangements. Elgar was the first internationally acknowledged composer signed to Novello, followed by Bliss, Dyson, Holst, Howells and Moeran. From the 1970s, the list increased, with important signings like R.R. Bennett, Bush, Frankel, Horovitz, Joubert, Leighton, McCabe and Musgrave. Novello bought Elkin & Co in 1961 bringing Scott and Quilter works to the catalogue, and the purchase of Paterson's Publications in 1989 contributed many works by Malcolm Arnold.

This session will introduce choral works from a latest generation of composers including our latest signing, Owain Park, and selections from anthologies of church music, French part-songs, as well as well-known composers, Eric Whitacre, Paul Mealor and Tarik O'Regan.
