Deutsche Grammophon 479 3232
Jenkins: Veni Creator Spiritus (7:25)
Polyphony / Stephen Layton
This album of choral music celebrates Karl Jenkins’ 70th birthday and his 50-year career in music. A motet is a piece of sacred music for unaccompanied voices. The works on this new collection include movements taken from Jenkins’ extended works, reconceived for this format, together with several pieces that are newly composed. They are performed by Stephen Layton and Polyphony, called “the best small professional chorus in the world” by Encore Magazine.
