Description: Trained as a Catholic church musician, the Flemish Peeters found Gregorian chant a lifelong inspiration along with the medieval modes and these form the basis of his musical language. His mature music is neo-classical, polyphonic with an emphasis on simplicity, clarity and transparent textures; most of the works here, which date from 1929 to 1947, fall into this period. D'Arcy Trinkwon (Marcussen organ of Tonbridge School Chapel).
