Sacred Choral Music – Feast of All Saints and All Souls is a collection of Renaissance choral works that celebrate liturgical themes from the Feasts of All Saints and All Souls. The 11 selections span the periods known as the High and Late Renaissance (1490-1620), and come from the Franco-Flemish, Roman, and English Schools. The moods expressed include joyous celebration, pensive reflection, and dark lamentation, as the choral music reflects the Church’s prayerful engagement with the mysteries of death and the Communion of Saints.
This is the second time that Jade Music releases a work by The Saint Vincent Camerata Scholars. The album comes with extensive liner notes about the chants, the period when they were written and the choir itself. It is the third time, Jade Music partners with the choir director Fr. Stephen Concordia, O.S.B.
