Choral masterpieces

From humble introspective passions to roof-raising requiems, this series takes us on a journey through the great choral masterpieces still moving audiences and congregations today, bringing together some of the finest and most affecting compositions in the Western choral tradition. The Christian Church exerted an important spiritual and creative influence on choral music, but today it is enjoyed by Christians and non-Christians alike. Choral music is surely unique in the sheer intensity of its passion and commitment. Featuring grand-scale performances of the Carmina Burana and Mahler's Symphony No.8 alongside the intimate rehearsals of choral masters Jordi Savall and John Eliot Gardiner, this series is a must for choral devotees.
