Sudden Light: music and poetry for a summer’s evening
Marking the release of our debut CD — Sudden Light, choral works by David Bednall – a launch event of music and readings, together with a drinks reception for friends and supporters of the choir who helped make it happen.
Recorded October 2016, it will be released in July 2017.
The disc includes the 40-part motet ‘Lux orta est iusto’ which was written in 2015 as a partner to Tallis ‘Spem in Alium’, and performed by Epiphoni at St Martin-in-the-Fields in April.
Other premiere recordings include the ‘Three Songs of Love’ with poetry by Yeats, McCrae and Clare.
Texts by Sassoon and Shakespeare complete a programme that aims to facilitate a connection between choral music and non-religious audiences.
