November New Release Information from Divine Art Records
I attach the press releases for late November new CD titles on the Divine Art label. The full press information for each release is attached as a PDF file.
DDA25094 “Madrigali – Fire & Roses” from Con Anima Chamber Choir conducted by Paul Mealor
An intensely beautiful programme from Paul Mealor’s choir, Con Anima, who give us a stunning performance of original 16th century madrigals and some modern counterparts, including Morten Lauridsen’s “Madrigali” and Paul Mealor’s own cycle “Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal” – the first movement of which was chosen as the musical centrepiece (reset with the text of Ubi Caritas) of the wedding service for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge earlier this year. This recording features the original setting conducted by the composer.
DDV24157 Peter Katin plays Brahms
Some lesser-known but majestic masterpieces here, in a disc originally issued in 1991 on the Olympia imprint and now available again at mid-price. The original review in Gramophone stated “This is an attractive performance, with mostly unhurried tempos……. and beautifully recorded”
As usual, just let me know which samples you would like and I’ll mail on a first come, first served basis. Interviews can be arranged with Paul Mealor and Peter Katin quite easily and quickly if you are interested.
I look forward to hearing from you shortly. Review copies will be available after 21st October.
