Pitts: Jerusalem-Yerushalayim
An ancient tale, a unique city, a new oratorio

This is the first recording of dynamic English composer Antony Pitts' largest work to date, and the first release in a new partnership between Hyperion and the label 1equalmusic. The expert vocal and instrumental ensemble Tonus Peregrinus is joined by a host of other musicians in this work where meltingly lyrical moments sit side-by-side with explosive rhythmic outbursts to make something of a sacred-jazz-spectacular.

A printed souvenir booklet (190mm square) to accompany the release is available separately. Click here for more details.
