Vic Hoyland

Notre-Dame de Chartres

for 8 a cappella voices


A remake has been published, and it is dedicated, in memory, to George Evan Holt (Sept. 1945 - Aug. 2009), the university friend who introduced me to the Parisian poet. I only recently found a record of his death (he’s buried in Islington). It was this that prompted me to make a new version.
