Biber is best known as one of the most important composers for the violin but was also a prolific composer of sacred vocal works. The works featured here, Vesperae Longiores ac Breviores Unacum Litaniis Lauretanis are seldom heard. SCarrington, Imon was a co-founder of the Kings Singers and was professor of choral conducting at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and director of this choir.
“This is an amalgam of little-known music by Biber and others. Carrington deftly brings outs the music`s strengths.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
“the solo voices are all attractive and accomplished, and strong instrumental playing is crowned by Robert Mealy`s imposing Annunciation from the Mystery Sonatas.” GRAMOPHONE
