Peter Maxwell Davies: The Three Kings (Vocal Score)
This Christmas cantata is an uncanny recapture by Maxwell Davies of a relatively simple modal style: luminous; sometimes plaintive; sometimes rapturous. A linked series of George Mackay Brown settings designed to give pleasure (if sometimes strenuous pleasure) to a non-professional choir. A spiritual mystery is glimpsed in an Orcadian setting. Commissioned by the London Symphony Chorus to commemorate its 30th anniversary; with additional funds from the Arts Council of Great Britain.The first performance was given in October 1995 by the London Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Orchestra; conducted by Richard Hickox. Vocal score.
