Fanshawe Chorus London, the Gerald Fagan Singers and Concert Players Orchestra have much to celebrate. In 2008, the Chorus marked their 40th Anniversary; the Fagan Singers, their 30th and the Concert Players, their 25th. To celebrate we release three CDs recorded in one year. Entitled Simply Beautiful Music - A Choral Retrospective, this set showcases the diverse skills and repertoire of all our groups.
The first CD, Mozart’s magnificent Mass in C Minor, is a choral great. It features Fanshawe Chorus London, the Gerald Fagan Singers and Concert Players Orchestra with soloists Leslie Fagan (soprano), Anita Krause (mezzo-soprano) John Tessier (tenor) and Todd Wieczorek (bass).
The second disc, entitled Christmas with Bach, features the Gerald Fagan Singers with the Orchestra in some of Bach’s best works for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.
On disc three, Create in Me, the Fagan Singers perform an eclectic group of acapella works that are both challenging to sing and beautiful to hear.
