Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arranged by Classic FM's Hall of Fame 2004 'top-ten-composer' Karl Jenkins, and sung by professional choir, Tenebrae, Gaudete is released on SignumClassics, both with percussion and as a pure, unadulterated, a cappella verion. Also on this disc is Alexander L'Estrange's arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon, and his spine-tingling version of Fauré's romantic 'Après un rêve' which will surely become an all-time favourite. Sir John Tavener's haunting, mesmeric 'The Lamb' is included, with an excerpt of a piece written especially for Tenebrae, 'Mother and Child'. And to close the recording, a special kind of 'applause' from Steve Reich.
