Core repertoire includes JS Bach cantatas, Beethoven’s glorious Symphony No 9, and a “must have” (Classic FM) version of Carl Orff’s famous Carmina Burana. Explore national styles and traditions from the British clarity of Elgar, Finzi, Britten and Tippett, to the stateside eloquence of Eric Whitacre’s “superb” (Gramophone) choral program, William Bolcom’s GRAMMY®-award winning songs, and Samuel Barber’s much loved choral music.

Vocal, instrumental, sacred and secular works are gathered either in discrete discs of the more celebrated composers from the mediaeval and Renaissance periods, such as Leonin, Perotin, Byrd and monteverdi, or appear in themed compilations: French chansons, german lute songs, Italian dramatic laments, for example.
