Notes & Reviews:

Evensong Live 2016 is a selection of the best weekly webcasts recorded during the preceding academic year (2014 and 2015). Real services at King's College Chapel are recorded using a state-of-the-art recording system concealed in the roof, vestry and organ loft. Microphones are suspended discreetly above the choir stalls, recording each of the choir's services and performances. This album includes a selection of the best performances during the year, as selected by the choir's Director of Music, Stephen Cleobury. The choir at King's performs evensong six times a week, in addition to Sunday eucharist or matins, furnishing the liturgy with music on a daily basis. This tradition has fostered many of the greatest choirs, singers and organists in the world. This selection of music provide a cross section of some of the everyday music making that happens at King's, capturing the atmosphere and acoustic of the Chapel. It serves as a snapshot of the choir at a specific moment in time, and presents evensong as one of the jewels of our national heritage. Not a relic, but a living and breathing part of our culture. This release joins the label's other, critically-acclaimed, recordings including: English Hymn Anthems, a Gramophone Editor's Choice; Fauré: Requiem, Classic FM Album of the Year 2014; and 1615: Gabrieli in Venice, the first classical album to utilise Dobly's groundbreaking Atmos technology.
