New CD and BBC Proms Commission
Last month Epiphoni began work on their third album which is due to be recorded in September for release on Delphian Records in 2022.
It will feature the exuberant, imaginative and accessible music of Bernard Hughes. The choir have begun preparations already and are enjoying the challenge like never before.
No sooner had we begun work on the project, the news dropped that Bernard has been commissioned by the BBC Proms to write a piece for this year’s festival. His piece, Birdchant, will receive its World Premiere in a choral prom by the BBC Singers alongside music by Nico Muhly, Roderick Williams, Byrd, von Bingen and experimental composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki.

An informal performance of the programme for Epiphoni’s all-Hughes CD will take place in Islington on 8th July. See Events for more details.
