Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Elysian Singers of London celebrate the enormous and varied contribution of Sir James MacMillan (b. 1959) to the choral repertoire over the last 20 years. Beginning with MacMillan’s blazing 2016 ‘choral fanfare’ Blow the trumpet in the new moon, the programme explores the spiritual and secular texts that have influenced MacMillan, also including his monumental setting of Psalm 51 Miserere. The Elysian Singers of London is one of the UK’s leading chamber choirs. Known for its adventurous programming, the choir performs in and around London and has recorded many widely acclaimed albums. This is the choir’s second recording of works by James MacMillan, following their critically-acclaimed first release with Signum Cantos Sagrados Read more (SIGCD507): “Robust yet tonally refined performances” (BBC Music Magazine) “Sam Laughton’s Elysian Singers perform here with captivating intensity, thrillingly so in Cantos Sagrados” (Classic FM) Read less
