Our new CD features a selection of choral works dedicated to the Virgin Mary, recorded at St. George’s Church, Chesterton in July 2011. This largely meditative programme of Ave Maria settings spanning four centuries also features Brahms’ radiant Marienlieder and offers a distillation of joy and purity – the perfect tonic. The CD is produced and engineered by the world-famous John Rutter. The official release date is January 2012, but we have a limited number of discs available for pre-release. Please contact CD Sales if you’d like to purchase one.

 

Will Todd, Requiem, £12

Todd Requiem CD

We commissioned, premiered and recorded this haunting work in 2009. This recording features soprano Bethany Halliday, and electric guitarist Thomas Gray, and was awarded 5 stars by Choir & Organ Magazine, and an 18 certificate by Aled Jones!

Those who know Todd’s Mass in Blue will have encountered his synthesis of choral and jazz idioms, and his Durham Jazz Evensong continues that trend. However, his Requiem… represents a different and totally original fusion, in which the keening and wailing sound of the bass guitar suggests disturbing images of death, making a most effective foil to the choral textures. The climax of the work, the Agnus Dei and the In Paradisum, features a lengthy and impassioned guitar solo and an equally wide range of colour from choir and soprano soloist – an outstanding response to the text.
