Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: Partsongs




Amidst the explosion of choral writing in Britain at the turn of the twentieth century, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s contribution to the all-important genre of partsong has long remained underappreciated.


Detailed Description

The Choir of King’s College London explore a selection of vivid settings of Romantic poetry from Britain and America, full of rich harmonies and poetic sensibility, inspired by subjects ranging from the exquisite beauty of nature to the Victorian fascination with death.

Featuring no fewer than seven premiere recordings in characteristically committed performances from Joseph Fort’s singers, this album adds another piece to the jigsaw portrait of a composer who was a household name in his day and is once more coming into his own.
