Karl Jenkins - Miserere:Songs Of Mercy And Redemption (CD ALBUM (1 DISC))

Sir Karl Jenkinscontinues his 75thbirthday year celebrations with a brand-new album, Miserere: Songs of Mercy and Redemption, released on11thOctober. The new work, released on Decca Records, is dedicated to all who have suffered or perished during the conflicts in the Middle East over the last 70 years. Karl was motivated by the desperate situation for the millions of people displaced and impacted by the cruel effects of war and hoped thehealing and uniting powers of music could be used to bring together people from different religions. Conducted by Stephen Layton directing his twice Grammy-nominatedchoirPolyphony, Misererefeatures Gramophone award-winningcountertenor Iestyn Daviesand 'rising star' South African cellist Abel Selaocoe, a recent recipient of theSir Karl Jenkins Music Awardin association with Classic FM.

Speaking ahead of the release, Stephen Layton said,"Miserere is such an intriguing juxtaposition of many elements –I do believe it will catch the imagination around the world. It's rare I find myself singing things over and over again. There is something very enduring and uniquely wonderful here which Ilove. I'm honoured to have had the opportunity to record this fantastic music."

Sir Karl Jenkins' works for choir, soloists and orchestra are among the most popular in the genre by any living composer, including Adiemus, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace–performed over 2500 times –Requiem, Stabat Mater, Gloria, TeDeum, The Peacemakersand Cantata Memoria. Educated at GowertonGrammar School, Cardiff University and the Royal Academy of Music, his recorded output has resulted in seventeen gold and platinum disc awards. Karl was awarded a Knighthood in the 2015 Queen's Birthday Honours.
