About

With the pure voices of The Trinity Choir and Daniel Taylor, 'Four Thousand Winter' takes the listener on a journey, both spiritual and historical, to remember and reflect, to hope and rejoice.

This album offers music from two millennia: from ancient 6th century chant through the miraculous works of Tallis and Byrd, to beautiful compositions from today by Howells, Larkin, Martin and Tavener. This eloquent sequence of choral masterpieces, full of emotion and simplicity, reminds us that the longing for what is absent may be found in the beauty of the present.

Having already released successful recordings for Sony Classical over the past decade, Canadian Daniel Taylor is one of the most sought-after countertenors in the world, and appears on more than 100 recordings across choral, a cappella, operatic and soundtrack repertoire. The Times (London) called him ‘Brilliant’ while Gramophone notes ‘his vocal beauty bows to no other’. The Globe and Mail writes ‘his star is rising at the speed of sound', ‘Daniel Taylor, a new Conductor on the scene breathing new life into magnificent yet neglected choral masterpieces’.

This is the first recording of The Trinity Choir - a Choir founded and directed by Daniel Taylor.
