World-premiere recordings of medieval and contemporary spritual songs including James MacMillan ‘Os mutorum’ and John Tavener ‘Two Hadiths’.
There are a number of thematic strands running through this programme: the wanderings of Celtic saints across Europe in the Dark Ages, light and the heavenly bodies, and the life-force of creation, to name but three. The most important aspect of this recording for Canty, however, is that for the first time we have been able to celebrate part of the rapidly growing corpus of contemporary music that has been of vital importance to us since we began our musical journey.
