Product description

In October 2013, Nonsuch Singers gave the UK premiere of Gabriel Jackson's To the field of stars, and it seemed the ideal piece for the choir's debut recording. The rich textures, rhythmic complexity and interplay between choir, cello and percussion held a great attraction for choir and conductor when we first discovered the piece and it has been a rewarding experience to revisit it for this recording. The companion pieces we have chosen to present alongside the work have their thematic origins in the stars and the heavens-Arvo Pärt's invocation to the Morning Star, taken from his Seven Magnificat Antiphons, Jonathan Dove's exultant Seek Him that maketh the seven stars, and another gem by Gabriel Jackson, Creator of the stars of night. Broadening the celestial theme allows for the inclusion of the Assumption of the Virgin in Victoria's sublime Vidi speciosam, and the sheer joy of Byrd's dance-like Laudibus in sanctis. But before all that, it's O quam gloriosum, Victoria's great motet, that, in its original form, starts us on our journey, before reappearing, transformed, at the end of To the field of stars as bells peal out in celebration...
