The Choir of St John's College, Cambridge / Andrew Nethsingha
Edward Picton-Turbervill (organ)
The Choir of St John’s College Cambridge, one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world, launches a new series of recordings on Signum by exploring the close connections between the college and celebrated British composer Jonathan Harvey (1939-2012), in a disc of works for choir and organ. Harvey’s music has influenced a generation of composers, described by The Guardian’s Tom Service as being “at once vividly contemporary and timeless”. The Choir’s director Andrew Nethsingha reflects on his own experiences and work with the Jonathan Harvey in the CD’s programme note, in particular as the choir collaborated on what would be Jonathan Harvey’s final work for the choir, 'The Annunciation' (2011).
St John’s Cambridge imprint will feature all forthcoming recordings by the Choir of St John’s College Cambridge, as well as young talent from the College and prominent alumni.
The second release, due out in autumn 2016, will feature music for Advent and Christmas, including both traditional and contemporary works, including Michael Finnissy’s 'John the Baptist', composed for the College Choir and winner of a 2015 British Composer Award. Future St John’s Cambridge releases will include a collection of violin works performed by Julia Hwang – a former category finalist in BBC Young Musician of the Year – currently an undergraduate at the college, and Kodaly and Poulenc Masses.
