Janáček: Choral Music

This recording features a wide variety of works by the Czech composer Leoš Janácek, ranging from the mayhem of the Ríkadla nursery rhymes and the description of the shameful antics of Mr Kašpar Rucký to the serene beauty of the Lord's Prayer setting. Several of the pieces are only rarely performed—even today when the composer's reputation is growing fast—and are little known outside the Slavic choral tradition which so influenced their style.
