About

Regent is delighted to announce the release of their first recording with Cantemus Chamber Choir, based in Cardiff, directed by Huw Williams.

This excellent choir is fast establishing a name for itself as one of the country’s finest choirs, with a wide-ranging repertoire stretching from the Renaissance to the present day. Widely acclaimed for its performances of Baroque music, Cantemus performed Handel’s Messiah at Buckingham Palace in December 2014, receiving a standing ovation. The choir’s growing reputation has led to it being featured on national television and radio, notably BBC 1’s primetime The One Show and BBC Radio 3’s In Tune.

The CD contains a very varied selection of Christmas music, new and old, including traditional carols in new arrangements – several by conductor Huw Williams receiving their first recording - popular American spirituals, favourite Christmas hymns, and contemporary settings from Eric Whitacre, Francis Grier and John Tavener.

‘Incisive, thrilling singing, wonderful to hear’ - Andrew Dickson, Guardian arts critic
