A YEAR AT NEWCASTLE
The Choir of Newcastle Cathedral
Kris Thomsett organ
directed by Ian Roberts
The latest addition to our ‘A Year at…’ series comes from Newcastle – England’s most northerly cathedral. This is the first recording of the re-vitalised Newcastle Cathedral Choir under their Director of Music, Ian Roberts, who was appointed in 2016, and has taken the choir to new heights.
Music is central to Newcastle Cathedral’s daily life of prayer, worship and witness, marking the church year and illuminating the Christian Story. This recording presents a flavour of the annual liturgical journey at Newcastle Cathedral, with music chosen to reflect the seasons of Advent, Christmas and Candlemas, and the observance of Lent, including the Feast of The Annunciation. We journey through Holy Week, the joy of Easter, and celebration of Pentecost; we mark Trinity Sunday, the Feast of Corpus Christi, the commemoration of All Souls, and conclude with the final Sunday of the year – the Feast of Christ the King. The repertoire for this recording is predominantly centred on the rich treasury of 20th century British music, along with some more recent compositions.
