Notes and Editorial Reviews

Around the figure of Christ there has grown up over the centuries a body of choral literature that can only be described as among the most remarkable in western civilization. The music of this recording, all for a cappella choir, is grouped loosely according to the themes of its texts (The coming of Christ, Words of Christ, The Passion of Christ, Resurrection and Ascension, Christ in the Eucharist), drawing together composers as far apart in time and space as eleventh-century France and twentieth-century Russia and America. The aim is not a liturgical reconstruction, nor an historical survey, but rather a journey of the imagination.
