Notes & Reviews:
Following its successful premiere performance earlier this year, Francis Pott’s highly anticipated recording of 'The Cloud of Unknowing' is likely to be a musical milestone and a choral great. Drawing together a variety of texts and musical influences, Pott weaves together a deep and emotional work with an ethos reminiscent of Michael Tippett’s ‘War Oratorio’.
