Conductors Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Stravinsky's popular, extroverted choral work Les Noces - the epitome of his Russian style - is placed in context in this marvelous recording featuring James Wood's New London Chamber Choir. Joined by the Voronezh Chamber Choir, who bring an authentic Russian sound to the ensemble, Woods also performs Russian folksongs and the Slavonic versions of Stravinsky's Ave Maria, Credo and Pater Noster. Other aspects of Stravinsky's compositional style are represented by the austere TS Eliot setting The dove descending and the memorial to TS Eliot himself.
