“Revel in the gorgeous sounds, the spellbinding music, the programmes with something for everyone.” – John Rutter
The Gesualdo Six, directed by Owain Park, present works from their third album, Fading, in the beautiful setting of St Mary's Church in Bridgwater.
“Weavers of rich and plangent aural tapestries, The Gesualdo Six meld style and substance with beguiling sure-footedness.” – BBC Music Magazine

Since the fourth century, the service of Compline has marked the end of the day, ushering in the darkness of the night. Much of the music here is inspired by this ancient service. The first half of the album features a selection of atmospheric works that relate to the transition between light and darkness. Then there is a turning point; the light returns, birds sing, and flowers bloom once more.
