5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Rutter: Tewkesbury's Choral High, 19 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rutter: The Tewkesbury Collection (Audio CD)
Full disclosure - my nephew is a member of the Tewkesbury choir. That said, this collection of Rutter arrangements is a soaring high with its plaintive counterpoints that breath new life into these traditional works. You need listen no further than the opening (11 minute) track featuring Gavin Wells' trumpet and the choir's performance of Lord, thou hast been our refuge. Thank you Delphian for bringing out this fifth CD of the choir and its inspirational director Benjamin Nicholas.

5.0 out of 5 stars able to straddle the school of light lyrical touch with that of musical sophistication and integrity, 30 Aug 2012

"DELPHIAN'S ongoing relationship with the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum of Dean Close Preparatory Schoolturns to the music of John Rutter, which in itself is almost a surefire success. For Rutter's music has that magical uniqueness about it in being able to straddle the school of light lyrical touch with that of musical sophistication and integrity. Sure enough, it inspires beautifully scented performances from the boys and men - works as varied as the substantial Brittenesque Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge and sparkling Wells Jubilate to the blissfully quiescent Ave Maria - augmented variously by gorgeous solo contributions on oboe, cello and trumpet, and from cathedral organist Carleton Etherington." - THE SCOTSMAN

Interested work from a modern composer. Voices from the Tewkesbury complete the challenge. To be listened again and again with no moderation.
