RECORDING PARRY’S JUDITH

Our recording of Parry’s forgotten oratorio Judith will come out on Chandos Records in March 2020. The first samples of music are thrilling to listen to and it will be a superb and groundbreaking premiere recording. However, we still have to close our final funding gap, so if you are able to support us to any extent, it will make a huge difference to this, and future LESF projects.
