About the album

Hertfordshire Chorus continue to build on their reputation for commissioning and performing some of the very best in contemporary choral music. In their first recording with Signum they are joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra for a 2CD set featuring James McCarthy’s Codebreaker (an exploration of the life of the pioneering computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing) and Will Todd’s Ode to a Nightingale (setting the famous poem by John Keats).

De première van twee nieuwe opdrachtwerken van vooraanstaande Britse componisten
Het Hertfordshire Chorus is een van de meest voortreffelijke symfonische koren van het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Het staat bekend om zijn gepassioneerde zang van hoge kwaliteit en het uitvoeren van zowel bekende en geliefde als nauwelijks uitgevoerde werken.

Met dit album bouw het Hertfordshire Chorus voort aan zijn reputatie voor het opdracht geven en uitvoeren van enkele van de beste hedendaagse koorwerken. Op het dubbelalbum worden ze ondersteund door het BBC Concert Orchestra in uitvoeringen van James McCarthy’s Codebreaker, een verkenning van het leven van de vernieuwende computerwetenschapper en wiskundige Alan Turing, en Will Todd’s Ode to a Nightingale, op het beroemde gedicht van John Keats.

Artist(s)

Hertfordshire Chorus is known for commissioning new music, high-quality yet passionate singing, tackling difficult, rarely performed music as well as much-loved and well-known pieces and is one of the UK’s finest symphonic choirs. Under the musical direction of David Temple our members give their all to singing, believing in the sheer joy and power of music to bring people closer together.

Our repertoire has included Glass Songs from Liquid Days, Beethoven Missa Solemnis, Janacek Glagolitic Mass, PoulencGloria, Stravinsky Song of Psalms and John Adams Harmonium.

We perform not only in Hertfordshire, frequently in St Albans Cathedral, but also in major venues such as the Barbican, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, St John’s Smiths Square and the Sage Gateshead.
