Product Description

'Officium Divinum' as an idea was conceived by Tim Ruffer, Head of Publishing at the RSCM. While exploring projects, he came up with the inspiring idea of composing music for the four periods of daily prayer: Morning, Midday, Evening and Night Prayer from the Common Worship, Daily Prayer . I have always been attracted to and influenced by the Gregorian and Taizé chants, both of which have echoes in my music. The four days recording this album in the beautiful Portsmouth Cathedral were memorable and I want to convey huge thanks to Convivium Singers and the instrumentalists for their strong performances under the inspirational direction of Eamonn Dougan [assistant conductor with The Sixteen]. I have been blessed since 2009 to have had the opportunity to write for the RSCM, an institution which I admire so much. Margaret Rizza

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritually uplifting 21 Oct 2013

As a fan of Taize, I listened to this at a friend's prayer group. So beautiful, spiritual and up-lifting. I bought it as soon as I got home.

This is modern church music as it should be. Beautiful sounds from a choir and soloists who feel the words. There is nothing stuck in the mud about this. A melodious CD with a fresh angle and one that is immensely satisfying.

For each of the four times of the day for which the music was written it is appropriate and stimulating in a helpful but unobtrusive way way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet from the amazing Margaret Rizza 31 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download
I have loads of CDs of the music of Margaret Rizza - I just love her music. This new recording is a complete step above anything else. The choir sings with real commitment, under Eamonn Dougan's expert direction. I have listened to this CD over and over again, and it gives me something new on each listening. It is a most beautiful recording that will help you make that most difficult journey, from head to heart (as Margaret says in the superb booklet).
