Format: Audio CD
This is a collection of 19 motets, some of them taken from previously issued CDs (‘The Armed Man’, ‘The Peacemakers’ ‘Requiem’, ‘Stabat Mater’, ‘Adiemus’, ‘Gloria’, ‘Stella Natalis’) but in new a cappella arrangements and sung by Polyphony under the direction of Stephen Layton. The other tracks are of original recordings. I particularly like a cappella recordings as the purity of the human voice comes through without being obliterated in places by thick orchestral textures. If you enjoy this composer’s melodies and harmonies, you will love this CD. Polyphony make a beautiful sound and it’s refreshing to hear the different arrangements of pieces I already know quite well. It’s like hearing Barber’s Adagio in its choral setting for the first time.

One of the most beautiful discs we own. Unaccompanied choral works by Karl Jenkins. Features new pieces and selections from other works.
Stephen Layton leads the group called Polyphony.It's spiritual music.

A collection of imaginative and inspiring small chorus arrangements. Karl Jenkins deserves to be more widely known. Beautifully performed.
Highly recommended.

Restaging of previous Jenkins music is good but not great.
