by the choir of the Temple Church
Treblesome was originally inspired by the versatility of the younger choristers’ voices and showcases a range of styles rarely found at more traditional services.
The album includes Britten’s well-known Missa Brevis, as well as popular songs such as Brahms’ Wie Melodien sieht es and Schubert’s Du bist die Ruh. Other folk songs include Britten’s Salley Gardens and O Waly, Waly, and new arrangements of Loch Lomond and Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner by Temple Church Choir’s own JonathanDarbourne.
The CD also features the first recording of a new setting of Nunc dimittis by John Ashton Thomas for boys choir, organ and saxophone. Treblesome concludes with perhaps the greatest piece ever written for boys’ voices: Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten.
