“Make We Joy”, a promotional collection of recordings from OUP

Malcolm’s catalogue of choral compositions is extensive, and a substantial body of his work has been published over the years by Oxford University Press. OUP, in association with Bob Chilcott, The Oxford Choir, John Rutter, and Convivium Records, has produced a promotional compilation of recordings of Malcolm’s works from their catalogue, and over the next few weeks, we will be showcasing these recordings, making them available to you to audition. Visit the Blog page by clicking here, where the recordings are posted.


Bach: Goldberg Variations – New Recording Coming Soon

In November 2020 Malcolm is planning to record Bach’s Goldberg Variations for Convivium Records.  This is a very exciting project and has been a long time in planning and practising.  Malcolm has always felt a great affinity for this masterpiece of the keyboard repertoire and is looking forward hugely to the recording which will take place in the converted church where he lives where he will play on his own Alan Gotto harpsichord.

The crowdfunding appeal for this project has now ended; Malcolm is immensely grateful to all who have contributed, helping to make certain it becomes a reality.

The recording will now take place in November, and Convivium Records are looking towards a possible release in the Spring of 2021.

Once again, thank you to all our supporters!
