Label: Signum Classics | Tracks: 14 | Rls.date: 2017

Signum s second disc with the Choir of the Queen s College Oxford is centred around the concept of revelation , both divine revelation (particularly the apocalyptic visions of the Book of Revelation) and revelatory visions of earth and heaven. The bulk of the pieces on the recording are inspired by the extraordinary visions of John, the writer of the Book of Revelation, describing the ravaging of the world through divine judgement; the battles between good and evil; and the world s eventual remaking as a new heaven and a new earth in which death and suffering are no more. The disc features three new commissions, by Phillip Cooke, Toby Young and Marco Galvani, who was a final-year student at Queen s at the time of recording.

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 English choral Christmas album has tended toward innovation, and it's good to hear that there's still a place for the traditional kind, with lightly embroidered traditional hymns, just ever so slightly wobbly, but utterly endearing, boy sopranos, and strongly diatonic Christmas compositions that are consistently and simply rapt in mood. That's what you get here from the Choir of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal, whose 17 "gentlemen" and "boys" under director Huw Williams are a smaller group than most of their competition and lend an attractively intimate quality to the proceedings.

Label: King's College Recordings | Release Year: 2016

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.

Label: Divine Art

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.
