ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD single is a ‘modern classical’ piece, written by Brighton-based UK musician and composer Patrick Wilson.
Originally, it was specially composed for a short film tribute to the victims of the London bombings on 7/7, by London filmaker Kathy Hill. The CD features the exceptional vocals of the mezzo-soprano, Renata Jonscher, and the well-known tenor, Neil Jenkins. Jonscher, who is classically trained, was born in Poland and has a considerable reputation throughout Europe as a vocalist. Jenkins sings in both the Welsh National Opera and the English National Opera, and performs regularly at Glyndebourne. They are accompanied by the Neil Jenkins Chorale and the delightful voices of the girls of Lancing College Choir.
Written for harp, organ, cello and choir, the music, which is very cleanly produced and arranged, has a notably religious atmosphere: sensitive, beautiful and dignified. The vocals of Renata Jonscher and Neil Jenkins complement each other excellently, providing exquisite harmonies over the instantly appealing melody of the composition.
Also released is a fresh video of the music, directed by Jai Michael of Coverdrive Productions. It was filmed in the stunningly beautiful chapel at Lancing College (which, incidentally has the second highest church roof in the UK, after Westminster Abbey). The setting of the chapel provides the perfect situation for the elegantly produced and very evocative video, with particularly creative shots of the singers, the chapel, candles and the choir. The postproduction and CD cover were done by Jurgen Ziewe, who has a long track record as a digital artist.
All in all, this piece is certainly one of the most engaging current releases in this genre and is well-worth watching out for on Classic FM TV over Christmas.

Eternal Light
Seeing the video on the classical music channel prompted me to buy this single. This really is a beautiful track, wonderfully executed - well done to all involved. Highly recommended.
