Following the success of Howard Goodall’s Enchanted Voices (the best selling specialist classical album of 2009, Gramophone Award winner, and nominated for the NS&I Album of the Year Classical BRIT Award 2010) and the Christmas album Enchanted Carols, the celebrated british composer returns with a new album called Pelican in the Wilderness, released through Classic FM Records. This amazing new release is again fronted by his extraordinary female choral group Enchanted Voices (who will perform at this year’s Classical BRIT Awards, ITV1 16th May) and also features The Tippett Quartet, who provide a lush string soundscape around the stunning ethereal vocals. The album is a collection of newly arranged Psalms, including By The Waters Of Babylon and a new arrangement of his world famous Psalm 23: The Lord Is My Shepherd. The title, Pelican in the Wilderness takes its name from a line in Psalm 102.
