Elgar: Go Song of Mine, Part-Songs and Choral Works – The Rodolfus Choir, Ralph Allwood

Drawn from across the composer’s lengthy career, this collection of Part-Songs and Choral Works by Elgar explores the great variety and range of his work for choir and voices. Along with more well-known works such as Love and Deep in my Soul there are early pieces such as O salutaris hostia (composed for small amateur choirs), which give hints of his later mature style, as well as the late I sing the Birth (1928) – a work that shows Elgar’s ability to adopt more contemporary styles of twentieth-century choral composition.

The Rodolfus Choir has established itself as one of the leading youth choirs in Britain, made up of singers aged from sixteen to twenty-five, who have been chosen from past and present members of the Eton Choral Courses for prospective choral scholars. Many members of the Choir are choral scholars, some are at music colleges, and most hope to make a career in music. The Rodolfus Choir and Ralph Allwood are well known for imaginative programming and for presenting new music. The Choir’s recent CD recordings with Signum include music by composers as diverse as Howells, Monteverdi, Grier, Tallis, and the German romantics.

"...The Rodolfus Choir shine strongly in these well-loved Elgar part-songs choral works."
  
Ian Lace  - MusicWeb-International.com - April 2013

                         Performance ****      Recording *****

"The combination of Ralph Allwood and the Rudolfus Choir usually means quality. It does again here in this excellently sung recital of Elgar choral pieces... A fine introduction to a still under-appreciated area of Elgar’sout put."

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - May 2013


 "... hugely enjoyable disc..."

Malcolm Riley - Gramophone magazine - April 2013


 "... Elgarians and others tempted by the works assembled in this new collection can be assured that it is on par with the best of them."
