Graham Ross directs the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge in a wide-ranging and moving sequence of music for Remembrance, including John Tavener’s “Song for Athene”, settings of the text “When David heard of the death of Absolom “ by two of England’s foremost 16th-century composers, Thomas Tomkins and Thomas Weelkes, and featuring Durufle’s 1948 setting of the Requiem Mass.

Founded in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. Beyond its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College Chapel in Cambridge, the Choir maintains an active schedule recording, broadcasting and performing worldwide.

In addition to live performances the Choir has produced an impressive discography: their partnership with harmonia mundi includes recordings of Handel’s ‘Messiah’, Blow’s ‘Venus and Adonis’, with René Jacobs, world première recordings of choral works by Imogen Holst, and most recently a series based on the major festivals in the Anglican calendar, produced, engineered and edited by John Rutter and accompanied by excellent booklet notes by Graham Ross.

“The singing and, above all, direction are of such consummate musicianship” (Gramophone)
