The third Choir disc on our 'St John's Cambridge' label in collaboration with Signum Records features Francis Poulenc's Mass in G, Zoltán Kodály's Missa Brevis and Leoš Janáček's Otčenáš.
The three works were written in the context of the traumatic first half of the 20th Century; indeed Kodály's Mass was premiered in the city of Budapest whist it was under siege. Despite all three composers experiencing life-defining moments of loss, each has used their unique musical characters to produce music rich in a variety of colours and textures. To hear more about the music of the disc, watch the interview with our Director Andrew Nethsingha below.
The album is available to order now. It was released Friday, 15th September 2017.
