Francis Pott

‘Pott is one of today's most interesting choral composers, managing to make challenging, intricate music instantly accessible. ’
Stephen Pritchard, The Observer, February 2012

‘. . . As a supreme choral polyphonist Pott can build up an agitated climax with the best of them — but it is those melting moments of repose which are especially telling and memorable. . . Deeply moving, . . . important music. ’
Malcolm Riley, Gramophone, February 2012
