Composer John Powell recently revealed that an album featuring choral works he has been writing over the past few years is currently in the works and set to be released by the end of the year.
Check out the last movement (“The Gift”) of his first-ever oratorio, which premiered last year in London, “A Prussian Requiem” – which the audience labelled as one of the most emotional pieces of music Powell has ever written – after the jump.
From the composer’s official Facebook account:
One year ago, ‘A Prussian Requiem’ premiered at Royal Festival Hall in London. “The Gift” from the oratorio is now streaming online for a limited time!
The ‘Choral Works’ album should be released by the end of this year including the requiem, ‘The Prize is Still Mine’ and this other piece I still need to write!
