The two featured works received high praise when they were premièred by the same ensembles in 2015. The Guardian noted the ‘extraordinary light and colour’ of the works whilst The Sunday Times called it ‘a truly thrilling excursion’. It brings great excitement, then, that this album has now been released.
Our full report on the premiere is available here.
EXAUDI also last month premièred a brand new work by Weeks, Libro di fiammelle e ombre. The world première took place on Saturday 1 April, 7:30pm at Wigmore Hall and was recorded by BBC Radio 3. The new work will be available after the première.
The following week, Leistershire Chorale also performed three of Weeks’ works, Orlando Tenebrae, A Tear and Sacred Muses, at its evening concert on Saturday 8 April in Holy Cross Priory Church, Leicester.
