A subtle album of choral music in memory of our loved ones. Framed by movements from Victoria s and Nanini s eloquent sixteenth-century Requiem Masses, and music by William Byrd and Kuhnau, a series of beautiful and reflective choral pieces unfold including stunning new works by John Duggan based on poetry from World War I. Featuring Sospiri, one of Oxford s finest choirs.
About the Artist
Sospiri was founded in 2006 by Christopher Watson and John Duggan after they met singing in Magdala, the inspirational choir founded by David Skinner at Magdalen College, Oxford. Uniquely, Sospiri is run by a composer and a professional singer, whose shared experiences provide a dynamic and diverse atmosphere in which to make music.
