Toccata Classics continues its exploration of the music of the Hungarian composer Ferenc Farkas (1905–2000) with this selection from his huge output of choral music. It ranges in mood from the folk-like simplicity of the Missa Secunda in honorem Sanctae Margaritae and his bright carol settings, via the asperity of some late a cappella pieces, to the fresh and buoyant Christmas Cantata.

This recording is also the first by the new London-based chamber choir Ascolta, founded in 2015 by Peter Broadbent.

Peter Broadbent is one of Britain’s leading choral conductors, known for his consistent commitment to contemporary music. He enjoys a versatile career with an extensive repertoire. In the UK he has conducted the London Mozart Players, the English Chamber Orchestra, the City of London Sinfonia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Southern Sinfonia and the BBC Singers, broadcasting frequently on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. He holds the ‘Pro Cultura Hungarica’ medal of the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Hungary.

Ascolta, formed of talented post-graduate students and young professional singers, makes its recording debut on this CD.
