Originally scheduled for our touring season for eight voices from The Song Company and collaborations with ensembles around the country, Burden of Truth comprises the world première recording of a brand-new 32-voice arrangement of Gavin Bryars’s iconic minimalist epic, Jesus’ blood never failed me yet, and our Artistic Director Antony Pitts’s 25-voice reworking of the extraordinary and visionary 13-part canon in the Eton Choirbook, Jesus autem transiens. The Song Company has expanded the project to include 34 professional singers featuring all of our Principal, Associate, Ensemble, as well as Emeriti Artists, and one or two special Guests, each taking part by recording individual parts remotely.
The resulting album is destined to be one of the most exciting releases ever undertaken by The Song Company.
