The Greater Light
A major reference book on Martin Shaw (photograph below), including a CD of selected songs and anthems, will be published in 2018 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the composer’s death in 1958. Edited by Stephen Connock and the composer’s grand-daughter, Isobel Montgomery Campbell, this will be the ‘go to’ book for any information on Shaw. It will include a comprehensive Catalogue of Works, a reprint of his hilarious reminiscences Up to Now and selected letters from his wide correspondence.
Albion is also releasing two books on English composers in 2016 – 2017, subject to the necessary copyright agreements with existing publishers. We plan to bring many valuable titles back into circulation.
