Description

About this release

This debut recording of sacred choral music by the British composer, Clive Osgood, features performances by Excelsis with the London Mozart Players and soprano soloist, Rebecca Moon under the direction of Robert Lewis. Osgood’s music is defined both by creativity and also by accessibility for both listeners and performers, from simple choral motets to larger scale works.

“Clive Osgood is a new name to me, but he definitely has his own voice, and deserves to be much better-known (I’m sure that will happen). The performances are impeccable and the production excellent.”Catherine Bott, Singer & Broadcaster.

Commissioned Programme Note

The sacred choral music on this CD can be divided into settings of Latin and English texts. The most substantial works are Dixit Dominus and Beatus Vir, which are both Latin settings of vesper psalms for choir and strings. Latin is a wonderful language to set to music, with a long and rich history. It has a certain universality and less complicated vowels than English. Read more
