Will Todd: Lux et Veritas - Music for Peace and Reflection
The title of this CD, Lux et Veritas (light and truth), draws together the sentiments of the 14 pieces so beautifully recorded by Nigel Short with Tenebrae and the English Chamber Orchestra in St Augustine’s Church, London in April 2014. The release includes seven new pieces composed by Will Todd that are inspired by his deeply personal journey with his daughter Rowan’s illness. All of the new pieces flow from grappling with difficult things and working towards a restful, inner solution. The calming and spiritual nature of the pieces could not have better interpreters than Nigel Short conducting Tenebrae.
