HAWES, P.: Revelation / Beatitudes (The Elora Singers, Edison)

Patrick Hawes has emerged in recent years as one of England’s most popular and inspirational choral composers. ‘The nine pieces that form Revelation are the result of my deep love of the Book of Revelation and its powerful imagery. Where else do you get thunder, lightning and demons as well as a gentle lamb? Another of my favourite New Testament texts is the Beatitudes from St Matthew’s Gospel—these are, quite simply, some of Christ’s most comforting and beautiful words.’ Quanta Qualia had such a profound impact on the audience at the 2015 Elora Festival that the choir insisted on its inclusion in this recording.
