In the recording, The Akathistos Hymn, British composer Ivan Moody blends medieval Byzantine chant with richly-textured Russian style choruses in this stunning vocal work, composed expressly for Cappella Romana. This is a World Premiere Recording and is a setting in English with the traditional Greek refrains.

He has studied music and theology at the Universities of London (winning the Royal Holloway Prize in 1984 for his Three Poems of Anna Akhmatova), Joensuu and York, his composition teachers being Brian Dennis, Sir John Tavener and William Brooks.
