About

Persecution of the innocent, malevolent authority exerting itself against ideas that threaten and challenge, the power of a peaceful, loving humility in the face of tyranny, the facing-down of fear; all hold profound universal resonance for people of many faiths and those of none. Such is the power of the Passion story and in his new work, Invictus: A Passion, multi-award-winning composer Howard Goodall has found a route directly to people’s hearts, telling the story afresh through his choice of thought-provoking texts combined with heartrending yet inspiring music.

Christ Church Cathedral Choir and Stephen Darlington join forces with soloists from The Sixteen and a stellar group of instrumentalists on this premiere recording.

“The performance itself was excellent, with Stephen Darlington and the choir of Oxford’s Christ Church Cathedral absorbing themselves into a musical idiom that, perhaps surprisingly, they have shown a past affinity with. Soloists Mark Dobell and Kirsty Hopkins were outstanding.” – Andrew Benson Wilson
