Review quote

Alan Bullard has a great gift for writing accessible, effective and melodious music for choirs; if you are not aware of his compositions, these three would be a good place to start. From the break of the day uses the text of the well-known hymn 'Lord of all hopefulness'. This anthem is in the key of A flat with a contrasting F major central section, and has attractive four-part writing and an accompaniment for either piano or organ. The arrangement is sufficiently flexible to be performed effectively by a unison choir or by a soloist. * Gordon Appleton, Sunday by Sunday (RSCM), June 15 *show more
