This concert and album launch marks the 10th anniversary of Apollo5. Most of the album was recorded during the long, quiet months of 2020, the process giving the singers a wonderfully creative focus in the midst of such uncertainty.
The concert unites a diverse collection of choral music spanning 500 years, from some of the earliest known polyphonic writing through to new compositions, in an energetic exploration of the joy and despair of human love. They have included works by composers as broad-ranging as Francisco Guerrero, Eric Whitacre, John Tavener, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc, Gerald Finzi and Michael McGlynn. The programme also features arrangements written especially for Apollo5 and several new commissions from contemporary composers such as David Fawcett, Paul Smith, Taylor Scott Davis, and Fraser Wilson.
