Colin Mawby (1936-2019) is one of Britain and America’s most successful and popular composers of sacred choral music.
The compositions of the former director of music at London’s Westminster Cathedral are now also reaching a
growing and increasingly appreciative audience on the European continent, not least thanks to Butz-Verlag’s
publication of more than 80 of his choral works.
Mawby’s compositions are very much in the tradition of Romantic English choral music.
Always tailored precisely to the needs of choirs singing services and concerts, they are characterised
by freshness and sonority coupled with harmonic and rhythmic finesse.
