“The disc was recorded in Portsmouth Cathedral, and the Nicholson organ is beautifully captured. The playing is uniformly excellent, and all the music is well chosen and shows great variety. The disc is worth it frankly for the Burke piece alone, which is a true stunner.”

About Convivium Records
Convivium Records (est. 2009) is committed to working with exceptional artists and composers to record and share their music. It recognises that a great recording project needs to establish a balance between artistic aspirations and commercial expectations. Whilst the majority of its projects result in commercial release, the label also takes on private projects for schools, charities and other institutions.
Convivium Records involves musicians and composers in all decisions relating to their projects, from initial discussions about a new album, to recording, distribution, promotion and marketing. The label’s ambition is to exceed the expectations of their clients by creating recordings that reflect their true potential. At the heart of Convivium Records is a dedicated team who work together to bring their specific areas of expertise to each project as required. Read more

“For this project, our aim was to capture our approach to live performance and record a narrative programme that takes the listener on an emotional and spiritual journey. Beginning with Cardoso’s Introitus and ending with James MacMillan’s Lux aeterna, this recording seeks to confront the darker aspects of human experience whilst also looking towards the future with optimism. As in our concert programmes, pieces from the masters of the Renaissance are presented alongside new compositions.”
