It was in 1918 that King's College Cambridge first hosted its own Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols. Broadcasts began in 1928, and the rest is history. This commemorative double album traces much of this history, with archive performances under David Willcocks and Philip Ledger as well as a selection of new recordings directed by Stephen Cleobury.
On Signum Classics Advent Live presents recordings originally broadcast live by the BBC as part of the St John's College Choir Cambridge Advent Carol Services of 2014-2017. Andrew Nethsingha conducts a refreshingly diverse programme. Chichester Cathedral Choir marks 100 years since the guns of the First World War fell silent. Lest we forget, with music by Stanford, Parry, Holst, Ireland and others, is directed by Charles Harrison. And the theme of remembrance is continued with John Brunning's Swansongs, a mini song-cycle performed by Elin Manahan Thomas and Daniel Grimwood.
A second release on Colin Currie's own label sees the master of all things percussion joined by the trumpet of Håkan Hardenberger. Brett Dean's The scene of the crime provides the title track, with other works including André Jolivet's seminal Heptade.
LSO Live completes a new cycle with the release of Mozart Violin Concertos Nos 1, 2 & 3, these youthful jewels sparkling in the hands of soloist Nikolaj Znaider who conducts the London Symphony Orchestra from the violin.
Baritone Stephan Loges has been in the studio for Signum with sympathetic accompanist Iain Burnside. Their programme entitled Nature's solace includes cycles by Schumann and Brahms, as well as a rare insight into the songs of Yrjö Kilpinen.
