About the album

As the centenary of the Great War approaches, the choir of Jesus College Cambridge presents a new program of works titled War & Peace, a beautiful and moving collection of choral works that are united in various ways by the experiences and impact of war.
Prachtige en ontroerende muziek over de ervaringen en het effect van oorlog
Naar aanleiding van de naderende honderdjarige herdenking van de Eerste Wereldoorlog presenteert het Choir of Jesus College Cambridge hun album War & Peace – een prachtige en ontroerende collectie koorwerken die op verschillende manieren verbonden zijn met de ervaringen en het effect van de oorlog.

Jesus College heeft een lange en rijke traditie op het gebied van kerkmuziek en onderhoudt twee koren: het College Choir en het Chapel Choir. De twee koren komen bijeen voor concerten, opnames en tours, en vormen samen een ensemble van bijna vijftig zangers. De Combined Choirs hebben onder andere het War Requiem en St Nicolas van Britten uitgevoerd, en de Messiah van Händel en het Requiem van Fauré in samenwerking met Britten Sinfonia. Het koor heeft een internationale reputatie en wordt regelmatig uitgenodigd om over de hele wereld op te treden, onder andere in de oost- en westkust van de Verenigde Staten, Duitsland en Frankrijk.

The Choir of Jesus College Cambridge

The Choir of Jesus College Cambridge, directed by Richard Pinel, has gained an international reputation for its music-making, based on performances around the globe, broadcasts, highly praised recordings and regular services in the College's beautiful and ancient chapel. Jesus College, founded out of the ancient nunnery of St Radegund in 1496, has a long and rich tradition of church music. It is distinctive in maintaining two choirs: the Chapel Choir, with its centuries of tradition, which is made up of boy choristers and adult male singers; and the College Choir, formed in 1982, which has female undergraduates for its top line. The adult male singers form the ‘back row’ for both choirs. Each choir has developed a distinctive reputation and repertoire. Occasionally,...

The adult male singers form the ‘back row’ for both choirs. Each choir has developed a distinctive reputation and repertoire.
Occasionally, the College and Chapel Choirs join together for services and concerts, forming an ensemble of nearly fifty singers. Projects have included Haydn's Nelson Mass, Handel's Messiah and Bach's St Matthew Passion and St John Passion. The Combined Choirs have performed with renowned soloists and ensembles including the Saraband Consort and His Majesty's Sagbutts and Cornetts under Mark Williams, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under John Rutter. The Combined Choirs also participate in regular large-scale performances with other Cambridge Choirs, including Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, Verdi's Otello and Walton's Belshazzar's Feast.
