Graham Ross and Choir of Clare College, Cambridge
Harmonia Mundi
Catalogue Number
Release Date
November 6, 2020

Graham Ross invites you to explore the highly individual conception of traditional carols offered by twentieth-century British composers, and notably the most eminent among them, Benjamin Britten. Arranged around his famous Ceremony of Carols is a selection of wonderful choral settings with and without organ, each of which in its own way testifies to the meticulous care Britten brought to these musical gems, most of them deriving from English folk tradition and heard alongside pieces by three older masters whose music had left its mark on the composer of Peter Grimes: John Ireland, Frank Bridge, and Gustav Holst.

Noël ! Graham Ross vous invite à plonger dans cette vision très particulière des carols que nous ont offerte les compositeurs britanniques du XXe siècle, à commencer par le plus célèbre d’entre eux : Benjamin Britten. Autour de la très connue Ceremony of Carols, on retrouvera de merveilleuses pièces chorales avec ou sans orgue, qui témoignent chacune à sa manière du soin méticuleux qu’apportait le créateur de Peter Grimes a ces noëls issus le plus souvent de la tradition anglaise. Un délice tout à fait ravissant !
