Edmund Rubbra (1901-1986) has become recognized as one of the leading British symphonic composers of the second half of the 20th century. In this recording, Glori&ælig; Dei Cantores brings the choral works of Edmund Rubbra to life. Featured as the centerpiece of this recording, Tenebræ, Op. 72 consists of nine motet settings of the Gregorian Chant responsories for Maundy Thursday. Rubbra’s expressive and powerful style conveys the depth of these texts that re-tell the passion of Christ. Also recorded are: Missa in Honorem Sancti Dominici, which is generally considered his choral masterpiece; Salutation, a part song written in honor of the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis Op. 65; and Festival Gloria Op. 94, an unaccompanied work for two choirs reminiscent of the Venetian school, which completes this landmark recording.
