'Sound moments of raptural texture (such as the word 'Christ' in Hail, Queen of Heaven, by the far the most substantial piece on this programme) … Dubra's natural home is a mood of controlled meditation and lyrical clarity … this style is well handled by the Choir of Royal Holloway, whose clean-edged sound, under Gough's sympathetic direction, warms to the generous acoustic of St Alban's, Holborn' (Gramophone)

'Royal Holloway's fabulous choristers and their inspired conductor convey the purity and spiritual fervour of Dubra's ear-catching output' (Classic FM Magazine)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Stetit Angelus was commissioned in 2005 by the Indonesian choir Vox Angelorum and their director Henry Sutjipto for a choral competition in China. Dubra saw this as the long-awaited opportunity to set this marvellously evocative text from the Book of Revelation. There are many interesting effects here, such as the opening chord which contains both static and moving parts on the same pitches. Later in the work free-floating voices reflect the image of rising clouds of incense.
