Wells Cathedral Choir, Jonathan Vaughn (organ) & Matthew Owens (conductor)
Named as one of the world’s finest choirs by Gramophone, Wells Cathedral Choir and their director Matthew Owens make their Resonus Classics debut with a programme of carols typically performed during the Christmas season in Wells – A Wells Christmas.

With an irresistible array of popular carols and more recent offerings this scintillating and varied programme is vividly realised by the combined boy and girl choristers and Vicars Choral that continue the 1100-year-old tradition of music in Wells Cathedral. Included in this compelling programme are works by David Willcocks, Andrew Carter, John Rutter, and Kenneth Leighton, Thomas Hewitt Jones. Also included are world premieres by Bob Chilcott, Jefferson McConnaughey & Matthew Owens. 

'Seamlessly blended by choirmaster Matthew Owens, who has cultivated a bright, gleaming sonority, and the type of crisp attack heard to good effect in the Zither Carol…this is a desirable collection.'

'The Choir of Wells Cathedral, who this week make their debut on Resonus, are one of England’s best-kept secrets [...] in an album full of unexpected delights.'
Classic FM (David Mellor)

'[...] Matthew Owens and his combined Wells Cathedral forces of boys and girls present a beautifully sung and exceptionally well-recorded disc, with a pleasing mix of the familiar and unfamiliar [...] and there must be a shout out for organist Jonathan Vaughn's sensitive playing, which adds much to the enjoyment of the programme.'
Choir & Organ

'The performances are poised and beautifully finished, with a lovely sense of control'
Planet Hugill

Resonus continues to welcome well established performers to record for the label. Here Wells Cathedral Choir under the direction of Matthew Owens presents a programme of music that is often familiar but nevertheless fresh and lively.
