Triodion - Arvo Pärt
The Choir of Lancing College
Commissioned for the 150th anniversary of Lancing College, Triodion follows in the footsteps of Saint Nicholas written for the College's centenary by Britten, who Pärt greatly admires.
It is, of course, beautiful, luminous, with tintinnabulously seductive harmonies.
Cox's Ave Maria is a lovely piece too, partly in the "Holy Minimalist" mould but with a much busier schedule of harmonic movement than that would suggest.
Young's ebullient Toccata provides a a galvanising change of mood, before Cox's Sequence, which makes you want to hear more. He can be entirely forgiven for programming so much of his own work
