Judith Bingham (born in Nottingham in 1952 and London-based since 1970) spent several years as a member of the BBC Singers, which may help explain the lyricism of her music. But the works on this CD also reveals her strong response to poetry and to place, a keen instinct for drama, an ear for keyboard colour and a Busonian sense of space and atmosphere.

Colin Clarke :
“Judith Bingham is a highly imaginative composer who, on the evidence of the booklet notes of the current release, writes eloquently on her own music. The recording (made at The Venue, Leeds, October 2009) is wonderfully present. It [The Moon over Westminster Cathedral] is a touchingly atmospheric piece , almost but not quite Impressionist. David Jones’s playing here is marvelously sensitive, as it is throughout the recital.” —Fanfare
