Vaughan Williams: Dona nobis pacem & Bernstein: Chichester Psalms

  • Ailish Tynan soprano
  • Roderick Williams baritone
  • George Hill treble
  • The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge
  • Britten Sinfonia Directed by Stephen Cleobury

Released 11 November 2017 CD/SACD hybrid

Two enchanting works of peace in intimate arrangements for small forces.

The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge joins forces with the Britten Sinfonia, Ailish Tynan and Roderick Williams for this album of two much-loved choral works. Both are recorded in orchestrations for smaller forces to match the size of the Chapel Choir: the Dona nobis pacem is presented here in a brand-new arrangement for small orchestra, commissioned for this recording, resulting in an intimate performance that brings new and different colours to Vaughan Williams’ work. The Chichester Psalms is performed in Bernstein’s own orchestration for organ, harp and percussion, and both performances include the recently-restored Harrison & Harrison organ in King’s College Chapel.
