Invictus: A Passion. Album by Christ Church Cathedral Choir



Album Description

Persecution of the innocent, malevolent authority exerting itself against ideas that threaten and challenge, the power of a peaceful, loving humility in the face of tyranny, the facing-down of fear; all hold profound universal resonance for people of many faiths and those of none. Such is the power of the Passion story, and in his new work, Invictus: A Passion, multi-award-winning composer Howard Goodall has found a route directly to people's hearts, telling the story afresh through his choice of thought provoking texts combined with heart-rending yet inspiring music.

'The creative use of the instrumentalists complements a fine performance from the singers.' Choir and Organ

'Goodall uses his unusual instrumental forces imaginatively, and textures, always expressive and always fascinating... The two soloists, Kirsty Hopkins and Mark Dobell, make a superb contribution, combining an expressively lyrical line with a feeling of passion and superb diction.' Planet Hugill
