Choral Releases
We celebrate Karl Jenkins's 70th birthday year with the new vocal score of Adiemus Colores, rich in South American samba, tango and bolero. This enables choirs to perform the work as heard on the recent Deutsche Grammophon disc - its concert premiere is scheduled for the Llangollen International Eisteddfod on 9 July co-inciding with the FIFA World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. James MacMillan's choral music is travelling internationally, with recent publications including the new English version of his Mass and his early choral work Beatus Vir. The Choral Treasury series has continued its exploration of Rachmaninoff in English, including O Salutaris Hostia from the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom joining last year's release of the Mass in Bb. Latest CME releases include choral works and arrangements by regulars such as David Brunner, Imant Raminsh and Stephen Hatfield plus new voices such as Andrea Ramsey. The Contemporary Choral Series is expanding with new choral works by composers including Joseph Phibbs and Will Todd.
