Bushes and Briars

So, who doesn’t love a good story?

We believe that overlooked treasures in the world of choral music should be unlocked for everyone to hear and enjoy. We wanted to preserve these treasures in an audio CD format that will endure for a lifetime. That’s why we recorded Bushes & Briars.  This CD brings together one of the flag-bearers of British folk music (Ralph Vaughn Williams) along with 12 other composers who have crafted a collection which creates in us a nostalgia for an earlier time.  Composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, Percy Grainger, Gustav Holst, John Byrt, Sir David Wilcocks, John Rutter, and others have written these messages about love, relationships, nature, and places.  Our goal is to give life to these musical stories and treasures and offer them to the world.
