Will Todd is one of the UK’s most popular modern choral composers. His output includes works for choir, stage works and orchestral works, and his music has been featured on BBC Radio 2,3 and 4 and Classic FM, and performed all over the UK, Europe and the USA. On this album, Nigel Short conducts superlative performances of Todd’s works by his BBC Music Magazine Award-winning choir Tenebrae and the English Chamber Orchestra.

This compilation includes the premiere recording of a new commission ’The Call of Wisdon’, which on June 5th 2012 was presented on the occasion of a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul;s Cathedral for the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

 

 "..Tenebrae, one of the best chamber choirs on the planet, loves this music and gives it the best conceivable advocacy. This is no pick-up band, either, note that the English Chamber Orchestra is on the job. Signum’s engineering flatters everyone’s intentions..."

Edward Green field - American Record Guide - January/February 2013


"... these uniformly excellent performances do not merely induce a deeply satisfying sense of well-being, they also occasionally send the hairs on the back of the neck rising... what distinguishes the music on this disc is the ingenious interweaving of Tenebrae with the English Chamber orchestra. Todd certainly knows what he is about: the three-part Among Angels achieves a delicious integration of harp and voices, while he creates a lovely feeling of timelessness as the sopranos float effortlessly around the rich string textures of Stay with me, Lord, at a whisker over seven and a half minutes the longest single track on this disc of minature but perfectly formed musical marvels."
