Description

The Highgrove Suite began as a one-movement piece entitled Goddess Of The Woods and received its premiere at Covent Garden on the occasion of The Prince Of Wales’ sixtieth birthday in November 2008.  Three further movements were commissioned, each inspired by a different area of the gardens at Highgrove.  The suite was first performed by the Royal Harpist Claire Jones and the Philharmonia in June 2010 at Highgrove in the presence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and invited guests.

This recording of the suite, performed by Royal Harpist Claire Jones with the Philharmonia Orchestra, was made the day immediately after the premiere with Patrick conducting.  The album also features Parry’s Lady Radnor suite which was performed at Highgrove along with a selection of other pieces for harp.
