The Dream of the Rood
Viderunt omnes (arr. John Casken)
ArtistsThe Hilliard Ensemble
Commissioned by Caskenís long-time collaborators, the multi award-winning Hilliard Ensemble, this release is among the last recordings they made.
Caskenís work is often inspired by literature and legend, landscape and painting and particularly by the Northumberland countryside where he lives. His compositions have won a Gramophone award, the first Britten Award for Composition, the Prince Pierre de Monaco Prize, a British Composer Award for Vocal Music, as well as shortlistings for both RPS and British Composer Awards.
This release marks the significant contribution to British music of one of its most notable vocal ensembles and one of its richest of composing voices, in work that is equally moving and dramatic.
