    MADRIGALI: FIRE AND ROSES
    CON ANIMA CHAMBER CHOIR conducted by PAUL MEALOR

    An intensely beautiful programme, delectably performed. Paul Mealor's choir gives a stunning performance of original 16th century madrigals and some modern counterparts, including the fabulous Madrigali of Morten Lauridsen. Of Mealor, we have the awesomely beautiful 'Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal' cycle, of which the first movement was personally chosen by Prince William and Kate Middleton (now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) as the musical centerpiece of the April royal wedding service (re-set to the words of 'Ubi Caritas') This is the original version, conducted by the composer, and thus 100% authentic.. Paul Mealor's work is also available as a download-only single (dds29002)
