 Update me on new releases by Commotio


Commotio was formed in August 1999 to promote neglected contemporary choral repertoire. Performances have included the second UK performance of Alfred Schnittke’s mighty Requiem and other rarely heard works including Paul Hindemith’s Mass and Kenneth Leighton’s Mass for Double Choir, the world première of Pierre Villette’s Inviolata, and Peter Klatzow’s uplifting Prayers and Dances from Africa. Commotio also promotes and performs the works of a younger generation of composers including, most recently, Richard Allain, Jonathan Bridcut, Andrew Cusworth, James Davy, and John Duggan. Their début CD of South African choral music was released in February 2006, followed by a CD for choir and cello in February 2008. A track from the latter disc, Richard Allain’s Ubi caritas, was chosen to feature on the Classic FM core playlist and appears in the compilation CD Smooth Classics – the Ultimate Collection. The choir recorded a disc of the music of James Whitbourn which was released on the Naxos label (8.572103) in February 2010 and reached No 2 in the Specialist Classical Chart. Their second Naxos CD, In the Heart of Things (8.572739), the choral works of Francis Pott, was released on the Naxos label in February 2012. In August 2013 Commotio featured as a gala choir at the Association of British Choral
