Product Description

Product Description

The familiar hymn 'Veni Emmanuel' is emblematic of the Advent season a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ s coming. Framing this programme, the hymn paraphrases the great O Antiphons: plainchant settings traditionally sung on the days leading up to Christmas; complemented here by later works echoing their rich imagery and symbolism. Founded in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. Beyond its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College Chapel in Cambridge, the Choir maintains an active schedule recording, broadcasting and performing worldwide. In addition to live performances the Choir has produced an impressive discography. The Choir s CD of John Rutter s 'Requiem', also produced by the composer as is this disc, was awarded Editor s Choice by Gramophone, amongst other accolades. The Choir s partnership with harmonia mundi includes recordings of Handel s 'Messiah', Blow s 'Venus and Adonis', with René Jacobs, and, most recently, world première recordings of choral works by Imogen Holst, hailed for 'impeccable ensemble' and 'thrilling performances'.

Review

This is a marvellous programme of Music for Advent and it is executed superbly by the Clare College Choir. It s obvious that the standard built up during Timothy Brown s long leadership, especially, has been fully maintained by Graham Ross. Much of the music is unaccompanied but when the organ is required the college s Senior Organ Scholar, Nicholas Haigh, makes a telling contribution. We know John Rutter to be an expert composer. He s a pretty dab hand with the recording equipment too, it seems; the sound quality for this disc is excellent. I enjoyed this disc greatly, as I hope others will do. --John Quinn, MusicWeb International- November 2013

I haven't stopped playing this since it arrived. The music is such a welcome change to what you hear over and over again on the usual radio stations and in the shops.

A rare collection. There's a whole lot out there for Christmas, but very little specifically for Advent. And it's all here. Anything you would want to hear during this holy season of preparation>

A gorgeous assortment of advent music, organized the way it would be in an advent service at Clare College Chapel. Choir director Graham Ross offers arrangements and direction that bring out the best in the singers, creating a distinctive sound, especially in the way the women members of the Choir present the treble parts. An invaluable collection, beautifully recorded by Harmonia Mundi.
