A Choral Christmas (CD)
The Rodolfus Choir, Director Ralph Allwood
A leading light in the world of youth choral music, the Rodolfus Choir is made up of choristers from ages 16-25 who are past and present participants of the Eton Choral Courses, begun by the choir’s director Ralph Allwood in 1980.
This new Christmas programme mixes the familiar with works not usually heard in carol services – such as Tomas Luis de Victoria’s stunning eight-part, two-choir Ave Maria (from an edition prepared by John Rutter), and more recent works such as Chris Chivers’ Ecce Puer and Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque. Such a programme is well-suited to a choir with the versatility and enthusiasm of the Rodolfus choir.
[The choir’s] discipline and diction throughout a testing programme is exemplary – The Daily Mail
