Many people know Anthony Bolton the investor but few know Anthony Bolton the composer. A colleague once said that in the long run Anthony may be remembered as much for his music as his investment expertise. Guild is delighted to publish the first CD of his music which includes four works. 'A Garland of Carols' is a set of 10 carols and harp interlude inspired and modelled on Benjamin Britten's 'A Ceremony of Carols'. It is performed by Oxford Voices directed by Mark Shepherd and accompanied by the renowned harpist Sioned Williams. This is followed by a song cycle 'Black Sea' which consists of five poems by the famous American poet Mark Strand set for tenor and piano. Anthony says 'I was completely enthralled by his haunting poems and decided that I had to set some of them to music'. Richard Edgar-Wilson is accompanied by Fali Pavri. The third work is a solo harp piece especially written for Sioned Williams to perform on this disc. The final piece is an Anthem 'My Beloved' which Anthony wrote for his daughter Emma's wedding in 2007 performed unaccompanied by Oxford Voices.
