Composer and pianist Will Todd’s new album features the ECO and Tenebrae Choir. “Lux Et Veritas - Music for Peace and Reflection” includes 14 pieces recorded in St Augustine’s Church, London, in April 2014, and will be released on September 29.
Will Todd writes: “With the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War One upon us in 2014 some of these [pieces] reflect on the broad and ever present issue of peace. Some of the music has been inspired by my own deeply personal journey in recent years sparked by the illness of my daughter Rowan. All of the new pieces flow from grappling with difficult things and working towards a restful, inner solution. (...) The calming and spiritual nature of all the pieces on this disc could not have had better interpreters than Nigel Short conducting the amazing Tenebrae. Wonderful musicians bringing my ideas to life.”
