King Colleges previous Requiem recording, that of Faures Requiem, was the best selling classical album of 2014, and was praised by Choir & Organ Magazine, Gramophone, The Times, and International Record Review. This new recording features another great French Requiem- Maurice Durufles 1947 work, in the composers original version. The release also includes Durufles Four Motets and his Messe Cum Jubilo. This recording is the last time the famous organ at Kings was played before it was removed for extensive restoration. The current form of the instrument dates from the early 20th century, but parts of the instrument date back to the early 1600s.

British-born composer Lydia Kakabadse has a multicultural heritage (Greek/Austrian mother and Russian/Georgian father). This heritage shines through in her choral music, ostensibly in the core Western church tradition but highly influenced by the modes of ancient Greece and middle-eastern music including Orthodox chant, both Greek and Russian. This collection of sacred choral works includes many standard liturgical texts some of which are set in the context of a dramatic mini-cantata, which Kakabadse calls a Concert Requiem Mass, based on a story she wrote. Other works are suitable for liturgical use. The works are performed by former members of the acclaimed Clare College Choir, all of whom have graduated and many are now professional singers.

Tomás Luis de Victoria was the greatest composer of the Spanish sixteenth-century ‘golden age’ of polyphonic music. This recording is of the six-voice Missa Dum complerentur, the five-part motet on which the Mass is based, and six further hymns and sequences including the great Popule meus, a setting of the Improperia (Reproaches) which form the heart of the liturgy for Good Friday. This is music of compelling beauty, which illustrates well Victoria’s extraordinary capacity to create through simple homophony extremely moving music of great expressiveness.

Mendelssohn’s Psalm Cantatas are small scale works for vocal soloists, choir and orchestra, based on well known psalms, expressing the general emotional content of the psalm in dramatic and romantic musical language. The writing is firmly rooted in the German choral tradition, no wonder for a composer who revived Bach’s Matthäus Passion in his time.

Compilations are highly useful in understanding the works of the inexhaustibly tuneful British composer Henry Purcell (1659-1695). He had a few big hits, like the Funeral Music for Queen Mary (which is included here) and the opera Dido and Aeneas (which isn't). But much of his best music is scattered around in small bits, residing within genres that are rather odd from today's perspective. Purcell spent much of his short adult life as a theater composer, and his incidental music, for example, is filled with perfect miniatures…

The Choir hails from Cuba's third city, Camagüey, an old colonial town which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008 for its iconic architecture, where the singers have studied music to university level and are members of the Provincial Choir, which their leader Emilia Chavez directs. Desandann (the original Cuban name of The Creole Choir of Cuba) emerged out of this choir in 1994, a difficult time for Cubans when the economy fell into a black hole following the end of the USSR and of Soviet support for the revolution. Food was in short supply, while homes and work places often went dark due to lack of electricity. The singers decided to re-forge the resistance songs and laments of their forebears and to celebrate the history of their Haitian descendants…

The intensely practical choral music of the young Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds is steadily gaining appreciation across the world. The works on this new album owe their genesis to commissions from the United States, England and northern Europe and encompass ethereal expressions of uniquely arctic phenomena (listen for wine glasses turned—and tuned—to wondrously simple but devastating effect within the choral texture), American ballads and several works in the ‘Anglican tradition’, the fruits of the composer’s recent residency at Trinity College Cambridge. Trinity College Choir Cambridge here returns the compliment, as it were, with superlative performances of these varied and engaging works, all recorded under the watchful eye of the composer and conductor Stephen Layton.
