Published music

Schola cantorum’s latest album, MEDITATIO, has just been released by the Swedish label BIS. It includes expressive works for choir from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries which interpret grief and bereavement in the light of hope and comfort.

Among the selected works are John Tavener’s simple but stirring The Lamb, Eric Whitacre’s unearthly Lux aurumque and two of the most beautiful Icelandic choir pieces ever written: Jon Leifs’ Requiem for the young daughter he lost and Thorkell Sigurbjornsson’s Heyr himna smiður (Hear Heaven’s Maker), considered by many to be the most beautiful choral piece ever written in Iceland.
