Now the Green Blade Riseth: Choral Music for Easter
Artist
Choir of King's College, Cambridge, Daniel Hyde
Label
Kings College Cambridge
Catalogue Number
KGS0065-D
Release Date
April 15, 2022

The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, releases a beautiful and varied selection of Easter choral music on its new album under the direction of Daniel Hyde.

Now the Green Blade Riseth is a procession through time and history, with music rooted in ancient Gregorian chant all the way through to contemporary works charting the course of Holy Week and Easter. The album presents not only a rich variety of choral music but a demonstration of the flexibility and agility of the Choir of King’s College: Daniel Hyde conducts the Choir in music from the ‘Golden Age of English Polyphony’ (Byrd’s Civitas) and the era of Italian grand opera (Rossini’s O salutaris Hostia), as well Victorian, Edwardian and mid-twentieth century choral masterpieces. A selection of popular Easter hymns structures the programme, which culminates in Duruflé’s stunning transcription of Tournemire’s Choral Improvisation sur le ‘Victimæ Paschali’, performed by Matthew Martin on the King’s College Harrison & Harrison organ.
