Description

This sublime and much-loved work gets an airing by the Cape Town Chamber Choir, conducted by Marijke de Villiers Roos.
Phillip Venter is the baritone soloist, while Tiffany Thomas sings the ethereal “Pie Jesu” soprano solo. The accompaniment comprises organ, harp, violin and French horn.

The second part of the programme includes the contemplative “Cantique de Jean Racine” (Gabriel Fauré), the nostalgic “Only in Sleep” (Ēriks Ešenvalds), the exuberant “Unclouded Day” (Alwood) and the traditional spirituals “Witness” and “I Can Tell the World.”
