Why are we doing this? 

 

The George Lloyd Society was established to maintain the library of the composer's scores and sheet music for hire and sale, and to promote awareness of George Lloyd's life and work through recordings, performance and publications. 

 

Downloads and online streaming of recordings have become the dominant media, and we have decided that certain CD recordings with plenty of stock should be distributed as widely as possible so that they will introduce new audiences to this music, and build up our mailing list to receive occasional news of concerts, broadcasts and biographical articles. 

 

This is what you will receive: 

 

  • CD: Requiem & Psalm 130. Exon Singers, Stephen Wallace, cond. Matthew Owens.

‘This disc will be a compulsory acquisition for any Lloyd fan but it will also be lovingly appreciated by any admirer of the vocal music of Fauré, Rutter or Holst.’ Rob Barnett

 

Sung with limpid purity of tone, their harmonies impeccably modulated and expertly disciplined”.  
Claire Wrathall, BBC Music Magazine

 

“a particular distinction of this first recording is the soloist’s part, sung here by the excellent Stephen Wallace. He is a countertenor of an unusual kind and the voice is not only lovely in itself but suits the writing ideally well.” John Steane

 

  • CD: A Symphonic Mass – Bournemouth SO, Brighton Festival Chorus, conducted by the composer. 

“An undoubted masterpiece in the British tradition of Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Holst, Bliss and Britten, Lloyd's latest opus is joyous, dramatic, tuneful, and quite overwhelming.”  CD Review

“This, in my view, is one of the finest pieces of English choral writing of the twentieth century.”  Gramophone

 

  • English Heritage - Black Dyke Mills Brass Band

“One of England's finest composers with the quintessential brass band. Lloyd is a master of the contest test piece...his music is filled with wonderful moments: dazzling yet lyrical brilliance, hushed chorales, and heart thumping bravura...a superb recording of stirring music...”
American Record Guide

 

  • 5th Symphony, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, cond. Lloyd

“The musical language is engaging...the orchestration is colourful, often luscious...the orchestra play beautifully under the composer's direction. Lloyd writes expressively and from the heart.”  The New York Times

 

 

  • Indomitable Spirit – an introduction to the music of George Lloyd.

12 tracks including movements from concertos, symphonies, opera, choral brass and chamber works,
together with a complete catalogue.
