Deutsche Motette (2013)

Deutsche MotetteStrauss’s sumptuous Deutsche Motette is the last word in late Romantic choral opulence, its teeming polyphony brought to thrilling life by this virtuoso case of over sixty singers.

The rest of the programme explores the vivid colours and shadowy half-lights of a distinctly German music that reached its culmination in Strauss’s extravagant masterpiece. The singing throughout combines a musical intensity and imagination with an understanding of period style, that are hallmarks of both choirs’ work.

The Choir of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge (directed by Geoffrey Weber) and The Choir of King’s College London (directed by David Trendell) are two of the UK’s leading collegiate and university choirs. Both choirs combine singing at services during term time with a busy schedule of concerts, recordings and broadcasts, both in the UK and abroad.
