Recording News from Divine Art Records – Paul Mealor/Con Anima Chamber Choir
Divine Art Records are pleased to be able to announce that The Con Anima Chamber Choir, conducted by Paul Mealor, will be releasing “Madrigali – Fire and Roses” in November 2011.
The recording features Paul Mealor’s Composition “Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal” – a short choral cycle of four linked madrigals on texts connected by their reference to roses, either directly or as a metaphor for love – one of these was featured in the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and has become a firm favourite on Classic fM. In addition the CD will present Morten Lauridsen’s “Madrigali: Six ‘Fire Songs’ on Italian Renaissance Songs” as well as other pieces by Monteverdi, Gesualdo, Scotto, Ruffo, Schaffen, Holst, MacMillan and others.
Full press details will be sent out in September 2011.
