Hopkins/ Gilbert : Sensation & other works

The enigmatic and intensely charged music of Bill Hopkins reflects the avant-garde sound-world of the 1960s with characteristic immediacy and quiet energy; Nine or Ten Osannas, by Anthony Gilbert - a close friend and ally - completes the disc.

"This immensely valuable recording now gives at least an inkling of the considerable composer that was lost to British music at the ridiculously early age of 37... Performances of both composers are forthright and attractively immediate."
BBC Music Magazine 1994
