Lennox Berkeley

Publisher: Chester Music

Lennox Berkeley was a composer of special virtues. His legacy includes some wonderful songs and piano pieces ... and a specific Catholic spirituality translated into religious music which will, surely, last. - Ian Bostridge, The Times

Berkeley's chamber music - small scale but sterling - is perhaps his creative essence. - The Sunday Times

Berkeley's polished craftsmanship is a key factor in this music, but so too is his acute ear for instrumental timbre and his subtle range of expression. Well work a listen. -  The Sunday Telegraph
