Cardiff-born Iain Quinn has been steeped in church music all his life, having been a chorister at Llandaff Cathedral before undergraduate and postgraduate studies took him to institutions including the Juilliard School, the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale and the University of Durham, followed by an international career as an organist, composer and musicologist. This CD brings together a large selection of individual pieces, a Mass setting and an evening service, written for a variety of distinguished choirs around the world. Quinn’s style is rich and densely textured and the featured works are of consistently high quality, very well performed on this atmospheric recording – the Mass is particularly impressive. Two organ works, the intriguing Continuum (N-O-T-R-E-D-A- M-E) and a spectacular Toccata on ‘Victimae Paschali laudes’, provide refreshing punctuation.
