Choral settings of Scottish poetry from Robert Burns to Alexander McCall Smith

These collaborations between noted 'Edinburghians' Alexander McCall Smith and Tom Cunningham appear on disc here for the first time, in a programme of Scottish poetry settings by some of today's leading composers. From the ethereal tenderness of Cunningham's Lullaby to the muscular angularity of Ronald Stevenson's Medieval Scottish Triptych, Laudibus responds with affection and athleticism to the expert direction of UK choral doyen, Mike Brewer.

Producer’s note: “It was not so sunny when we recorded Scotland at Night…On 3-5 January whilst Laudibus was in Colinton Parish Church in Edinburgh to record this collection, the boiler gave out! Anyway, I offered as much support to the ever-spirited Mike & his crew as I could from the Minister's office (things are quite plush in Colinton, and thankfully the heating system in the Minister's suite runs off a newer-fangled & more efficient boiler!). You would never know that these lush sounds were recorded in a sub-freezing environment!” Paul Baxter

Totus Tuus - Henryk Górecki Choral Music - National Youth Choir of Great Britain

Totus Tuus - Henryk Górecki Choral Music - National Youth Choir of Great Britain
ID: DCD34054
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The massed voices of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain are ideally suited to the choral music of Henryk Mikolaj Górecki, music of a monumental radiance which demands a huge and rich sonority. Alongside the ever-popular Totus Tuus, this resplendent recording also contains two recent works here receiving their premieres on disc - the luminous Lobgesang and the thrillingly massive Salve Sidus Polonorum, for choir, organ, two pianos and percussion.

Górecki (1933-2010) made his reputation as a leader of the Polish avant-garde in the 1950s, with his early works marking ‘the most colourful and vibrant expression of the new Polish wave.’ Inspired by folk and religious influences, and demonstrating a clear affinity with the likes of Szymanowski and Bartók, the emotional power and clarity of his music continues to radiate and inspire. Tracing his choral works from the Psalm settings of 1972 to music written in his final decade, this disc provides a fascinating insight into one of the most unique musical voices of the twentieth century.
