JANACEK: The Lord’s Prayers GCCD 4042

JANACEK: THE LORD’S PRAYER (Choral & Organ Music) CHRIST CHURCH

CATHEDRAL CHOIR, OXFORD
Directed by

Stephen Darlington, Andrew Carwood (tenor), Clive Driskill-Smith (organ), Victoria Davies (Harp), Aline Nassif (Piano)

Griffin has assembled a world-class team here for discovery recordings of Janacek’s beautiful shorter church works. The reaction last spring when BBC Radio 3 broadcast a live performance of “The Lord’s Prayer” ( Otčenáš ) was astounding, predicting exceptional interest in this recording. Another notably beautiful piece is “On the Death of Daughter Olgy”.  Stephen Darlington now leads one of the UK’s top choirs in these works, of which there are very few if any versions available.

The CD, includes a 12-page booklet with an essay by the leading critic / Slavonic specialist Ivan Moody and full Czech / English texts.
