Liner Notes

The music is fascinating and extremely stimulating. More akin to much of Britten’s choral music than any Czech composer. A challenge for any first time listener is to resist humming the syncopated ‘crucify’ theme for the rest of the day!

C Hunt – Organ
S Foulkes – Baritone
T Tulacek – Violin
Bath Camerata
Nigel Perrin – Director

“The composer’s voice is strong and individual. This is a real discovery” – The Gramophone
“The powerful imagery of the music remains always fresh after repeated hearings. This disc whets the appetite for more – from composer and performers alike” – Choir & Organ Magazine
