Maida Vale Singers
Nunc Dimittis
Royal Ballet Sinfonia

A collection of Russian sacred music, featuring new choral settings of well-known themes by Borodin. In the manner of Lux Aeterna (from Elgar's Nimrod) and Barber's Agnus Dei (his own original version of the Adagio for Strings), Robin White has set the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, plus verses from Psalm 101, to three of Borodin's best tunes, in a way that sounds wholly natural and convincing. These are coupled with a selection of the best original anthems by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and some lesser-known but very worthy contemporaries. More Info
