Published on 3 Feb 2014

Four motets by the English composer Nicholas Wilton: Ave Maria, Panis Angelicus, Felix Namque & Kyrie (from his Missa Brevis) sung by Magnificat (directed by Philip Cave), Julian Gavin and Cantiones Sacrae (© Copyright 1999-2004 by Nicholas Wilton/Philangelus).

Accompanying the music is a selection of paintings and frescoes by the Italian Renaissance painter Fra Angelico (91395-1455)

Born in 1959, Nicholas Wilton began writing sacred choral music in 1990, having previously composed mainly for the piano. His first introduction to music was the Mozart and Schubert Lieder which his German mother sang to her children. In his twenties he came to admire the sacred music of the sixteenth century Catholic masters. His music has been recorded by the acclaimed choir Magnificat and other great musicians.
