About

The Choir of St Johnís College, Cambridge is experiencing another vintage year of musical and vocal excellence. In this latest CD for Hyperion, its trademark sound, immaculate yet energetic and joyful, is employed in the service of a fascinating selection of sacred choral works from the twentieth century.
 
Joseph Jongen brought his vast array of musical influences to the European sacred music tradition, creating works of unrestrained lyrical and melodic power which nevertheless illustrate the liturgical texts with reverence. Jongenís Messe en líhonneur du Saint-Sacrement is a major work on a large scale, richly contrapuntal, interwoven throughout with plainsong melodies expertly manipulated, harmonically vivid and original. It is scored for brass and organ accompaniment reminiscent of Gabrieli and its sumptuous texture is perfectly captured here in the famous resonant acoustic of the chapel.
 
Flor Peetersí Missa Festiva is a similarly vibrant and enjoyable work. Also recorded here, demonstrating the considerable individual talents of St Johnís soloists, are three of Jongenís sacred solo motets, each written for specific personal occasions, sensitively scored and imbued with emotional sincerity.
