"The intimacy and illumination of Gowers’ reading has brought this piece to life in ways I scarcely thought possible."
Gramophone Editor's Choice
'There is a sense here that he feels the music, that he shares much of the Messiaen’s vision and that he knows exactly what he wants the music to say to the listener.'
'He displays not only great virtuosity but also considerable sensitivity and an evident understanding of and empathy with Messiaen’s visionary music.'
In addition to La Nativité du Seigneur, Richard Gowers appears on several recordings with leading ensembles, including King's College Choir, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Britten Sinfonia and Tiffin Boys Choir, and a number of 2023 releases on Delphian Records with Britten Sinfonia, Choir of Merton College Oxford, KCL Choir and St Sepulchre’s London.
