Product Description

Product Description

For his final recording with the men and boys of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, Benjamin Nicholas chose to celebrate Britains best-loved living composer. Rather than simply sticking to familiar classics, this programme explores the full range of Rutters output, from The Lord is my shepherd and Lord, thou hast been our refuge to his most recent piece, This is the day, written for the wedding of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Review

Rutter at his finest ... plenty of technical control in the choir s singing ... gorgeous oboe playing too. --Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine Christmas Issue 2012

'This album is well worth purchasing. The combination of the music written by one of the greatest living composers and the well-developed tone and vocal strength from the boys and men of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, is not to be missed.' --HiFi Magazine, May 2015

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.

"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.
