Remembrance

Original release date: 2016
Format:

Graham Ross directs the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge in a wide-ranging and moving sequence of music for Remembrance, including John Tavener's Song for Athene, settings of the text When David heard by two of England's foremost 16th-century composers, Thomas Tomkins and Thomas Weelkes, and featuring Maurice Durufle's 1948 setting of the Requiem Mass.

“Graham Ross’s programme binds the Tudor grief of Tomkins and Weelkes with romantic Elgar and the hallucinatory stasis of Tavener’s ‘Song for Athene’.  In the ideal ambience of Lincoln Cathedral, Ross and the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, rise to a high-class performance [of Duruflé’s Requiem] that breathes an elevated air of Gallic sensuality and measured grandeur.”  - **** The Financial Times
 
“Thoughtfully conceived…expertly performed…the Clare College Choir is among the finest of the UK collegiate choirs” - MusicWeb International
