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.

Though previously unrecorded, much of the repertoire has been published (or is due for publication) by OUP and Boosey and Hawkes and is available to buy via their websites.
