Edmund Rubbra (1901-1986) has become recognized as one of the leading British symphonic composers of the second half of the 20th century. In this recording, Gloriæ Dei Cantores brings the choral works of Edmund Rubbra to life. Tenebræ, Op. 72 consists of nine motet settings of the Gregorian Chant responsories for Maundy Thursday. Rubbra's expressive and powerful style conveys the depth of these texts that re-tell the passion of Christ. Also recorded are: Missa in Honorem Sancti Dominici, which is generally considered his choral masterpiece; Salutation, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis Op. 65; and Festival Gloria Op. 94, which completes this landmark recording.
“The superior performance of the Rubbra choral works by the Gloriae Dei Cantores choir on this recording is a direct result of the meticulous attention given to two key elements inherent in choral music: intonation and textual clarity. And in every piece the expressive details, so carefully indicated by the composer, are sensitively and wonderfully realized.”—Music of Edmund Rubbra
