Adiemus, Karl Jenkins - Adiemus - Songs Of Sanctuary (CD ALBUM (1 DISC))

Sir Karl Jenkins, the most performed living composer, is celebrating his 75thbirthday with a brand-new album and a host of reissues from his immensely popular catalogue –all now available on Decca Records.

Adiemusis largely the brainchild of former Soft Machine keyboardist Karl Jenkins, with participation from independent vocalist Miriam Stockley. Jenkins describesSongs of Sanctuaryas "an extended choral-type work based on the European classical tradition, but where the vocal sound is more akin to 'ethnic' or 'world' music."

The music of Adiemus, Jenkins later explains, includes voices, but not lyrics: "The text was written phonetically with the words viewed as instrumental sound, the idea being to maximisethe melisma (an expressive vocal phrase) by removing the distraction, if one can call it that, of words."

Ranging in mood from gently tribal to ecclesiastical, Adiemus succeeds in creating the impression of an enchanted global youth or female choir, yet one less forebodingly mysterious than any of the groups previously mentioned.
