The Marian Consort originally made its name with the music of the Renaissance. But the group has also worked regularly with living composers for a number of years. This programme of contemporary Marian anthems - many of them commissioned by the ensemble - celebrates a living, developing tradition where the new is always informed by the old, casting fresh, vital light on these ancient words. Includes 'Regina coeli laetare' (No. 3 of Three Latin Motets op. 83/1 by Lennox Berkeley)

Performed by the Marian Consort & Rory McCleery (conductor)
