Original release date: 2015

Ascension and Pentecost are among the chief feasts of the Christian year.  The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and The Dmitri  Ensemble, both led by Graham Ross, explore the rich imagery of musical settings which span five centuries, including five world première recordings.

"Ascendit Deus' distinguishes itself not only through expert singing, but through a program that hangs together very well... a state-of-the-art seasonal sacred recording, beautifully engineered." - All Music
 
"splendidly bright...vigorous...haunting effect...all beautifully performed by this accomplished choir. Let’s hope an Easter disc is on its way." - Gramophone
 
"beautifully blended choral sonorities … [this] superb recording serves as a sonorous reminder of the British choral tradition and its vibrant contemporary life"- Opera News
