World premiere recordings
Delphian's first orchestral recording presents a richly imagined new choral
symphony by Edward Harper, setting it alongside chamber works by this
inventive and limpidly expressive composer.

Harper's music is firmly within the British symphonic tradition, yet ranges wider still in its deeply felt response to human experience, from the 19th-century Dorset of William Barnes to a message of hope and reconciliation from the present-day Middle East.

Edward Harper was born in Taunton, Somerset. He studied music at Christ Church, Oxford, where he gained a first class honours degree, and at the Royal College of Music, London. Subsequently he studied for a further period with Franco Donatoni in Milan. Since 1964 he has been on the staff of the Faculty of Music at Edinburgh University, where he is a Senior Lecturer. He is active as a pianist and conductor and is the Director of the New Music Group of Scotland, an ensemble which has established itself as a significant and highly- valued part of Scottish musical life, as well as giving concerts in London and abroad.

Totus Tuus - Henryk Górecki Choral Music - National Youth Choir of Great Britain

Totus Tuus - Henryk Górecki Choral Music - National Youth Choir of Great Britain
ID: DCD34054
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The massed voices of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain are ideally suited to the choral music of Henryk Mikolaj Górecki, music of a monumental radiance which demands a huge and rich sonority. Alongside the ever-popular Totus Tuus, this resplendent recording also contains two recent works here receiving their premieres on disc - the luminous Lobgesang and the thrillingly massive Salve Sidus Polonorum, for choir, organ, two pianos and percussion.

Górecki (1933-2010) made his reputation as a leader of the Polish avant-garde in the 1950s, with his early works marking ‘the most colourful and vibrant expression of the new Polish wave.’ Inspired by folk and religious influences, and demonstrating a clear affinity with the likes of Szymanowski and Bartók, the emotional power and clarity of his music continues to radiate and inspire. Tracing his choral works from the Psalm settings of 1972 to music written in his final decade, this disc provides a fascinating insight into one of the most unique musical voices of the twentieth century.
