Notes and Editorial Reviews
A leading light in the world of youth choral music, the Rodolfus Choir is made up of choristers from ages 16-25 who are past and present participants of the Eton Choral Courses, begu n by the choir's director Ralph Allwood in 1980. This new Christmas programme mixes the familiar with pieces not usually heard in carol services - suc h as Tomas Luis de Victoria's stunning eight-par t Ave Maria (from an edition prepared by John Rutter), and more recent works like Chris Chivers' Ecce Puer and Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque. Such a programme is well-suited to a group with the versatility and enthusiasm of the Rodolfus choir.
