Choral music in Kate Mosse's LABYRINTH
Date: May 22, 2014
Location: Missouri, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Sorry for the short notice, but I just learned that the CW television network will be broadcasting tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow, at 8 pm ET (check your area for local times) an adaptation of Kate Mosse's novel, Labyrinth. The stellar cast includes Tom Felton (Hary Potter series), Jessica Brown Findllay (Downton Abbey), and John Hurt (too many to mention ...)
The soundtrack is by the award-winning composer Trevor Jones, and includes a new setting in Latin of Psalm 23. It's performed by the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus, who gave its world premiere last year. I _think_ it's used mostly in the final episode. In any event, it's a strong piece, scored for SSAATTBB a cappella, with some divisi for the basses.
If you watch the film and you'd like more information about Jones's piece, please contact me. Use this email address:
