Reviews

'Here's a vital and beautifully performed collection of modern a cappella choral music from a most excellent choir with a considerable recording history … it's not a surprise that Mr Summerly and his choir can handle fiendishly difficult modern music with all of the skill, authority and pleasing sound they bring to early music. Hyperion comes through again with a superior booklet and enviable recording quality' (American Record Guide)

'This disc offers considerable rewards in an admittedly parochial field, and also preserves a delectable snap-shot of the Schola Cantorum of Oxford on outstanding form, over a decade ago' (International Record Review)

'You may confidently invest in this disc. Its musical rewards are ample' (Fanfare, USA)
Eres … is a setting of a love poem (Testamento de Otoño) by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. The poem’s obvious parallel is with the Song of Songs in that it deals ecstatically with the appreciation of the human form in mundane and spiritual ways simultaneously. The minimalist setting by the Portuguese composer Eugénio Manuel Rodrigues is spacious and mysterious; it culminates in a representation of the wind passing through the branches of a tree.
