SOLD OUT Haec Dies: Music for Easter

Original release date: 2016

This is the day that the Lord hath made.

The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and director Graham Ross continue their series of music for the church year with a sequence for Easter Day that spans five centuries and explores the rich tapestry of repertoire from across the European continent.

" ... This recording is every bit as desirable as its predecessors. ... The Choir, subtlety modulated by conductor Graham Ross, spins a wonderfully fluid, mellifluous texture. ... These are, all told, performances of real quality and intelligence, by a choir which has carved a highly distinctive niche for itself amid the Oxbridge scramble'" 4.5 stars - BBC Music Magazine
"Clare College Choir set the gold standard for mixed collegiate choirs and maintains its prowess in this disc of Easter music. ... Matthew Martin's new setting of Haec dies, ear-catching and spirited, receives its world-premiere recording. Rachmaninov’s Dnes’ spaseniye has a dark resonance, complemented by the full harmonies of Samuel Wesley’s Blessed be God and Father. ... Dic nobis Maria by the Venetian Giovanni Bassano goes with a real swing and might have been composed yesterday." - The Guardian
