CD of the week:Patrick Hawes - The Highgrove Suite
27 September: To celebrate 30 years of living at Highgrove House, Prince Charles commissioned The Highgrove Suite, which received its royal premiere at the world-famous gardens in June this year.
It’s now being released on the Classic FM label – and, appropriately enough, the central work is by our former Composer-in-Residence Patrick Hawes.
Claire Jones, Royal Harpist to The Prince of Wales, is the soloist for The Highgrove Suite, and the album is completed with music by Hubert Parry and William Mathias.
