Baritone Christopher Bowman and pianist David Chafe are thrilled to announce that their

debut CD 'Over Hill and Valley' has just been awarded "Classical Recording of the Year"

at Nova Scotia Music Week 2008.  'Over Hill and Valley'is now a multiple award winning

disc – Christopher and David were awarded "2007 Classical Artists of the Year" by Music

Newfoundland and Labrador.  They were unable to attend the awards ceremony in Pictou County

this past weekend, as Chris was busy with the Halifax Camerata Singers recording a CBC "Choral

Concert" broadcast (to be aired on Radio 2 on November 16th), and David was in Gander, NL, where

his latest CD of Christmas music was nominated for a Music NL award (such is the life of busy

musicians!).

Christopher and David would like to thank Music Nova Scotia and its members for this honour! 

They are absolutely delighted by this recognition and look forward to their next concert collaboration

early in 2009. 

'Over Hill and Valley' features two song cycles – the beloved "Songs of Travel" by Ralph Vaughan

Williams and Gerald Finzi's beautiful work "Earth and Air and Rain". 

If you would like to purchase a copy of this award-winning CD, please contact Christopher Bowman

support.
