Premiere recordings of James Francis Brown


The Choir of Royal Holloway is the choir on “The Heavens and the Heart”, the new album from Resonus Classics featuring the music of contemporary British composer James Francis Brown.

Under conductor George Vass, Catriona Scott and the choir vividly bring to life Brown’s Clarinet Concerto (Lost Lanes – Shallow Groves) and his inspired trio of psalm settings The Heavens and the Heart.

James Francis Brown studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He has made significant contributions to chamber music, and has arranged several well-known pieces for the Royal Opera House and the City of London Festival. He has held multiple fellowships and composer-in-residence titles, including at the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove, and Ulverston Festival.
