Howard Goodall has won the Specialist Classical Chart Award at the 2009 Gramophone Awards, held at London's Dorchester Hotel on 2 October.
The Award is in recognition of the fact that his haunting choral album Enchanted Voices has been riding high at No 1 in the Classic FM Chart for 27 weeks, a record in the station's 17-year history!
Sheet music for all 12 of the tracks on the album is available by clicking here.
‘Classic FM listeners can't get enough of contemporary plainchant by the station’s composer Howard Goodall. He has taken the popular plainsong genre, a best-selling fixture in classical charts, and given it a real 21st century update, with dramatic and unexpected harmonic twists and luscious textures. The twelve tracks premiered over the past year on his Classic FM show. The recording standard is stunning, a gorgeous acoustic. This is sheer quality from one of the most influential music makers of our times.’
