CD A0704: Carmina Locunda

Carmina Locunda
Sarah Deere-Jones

CD cover: Carmina Locunda Carmina Iocunda is a significant new work for choir and Lever Harp by award-winning Harpist Sarah Deere-Jones ARAM LRAM LGSM. Carmina Iocunda is a compilation of 8 settings of Medieval & Tudor poems, 2 for each season of the year, maintaining the Taverner, Rutter and Britten tradition of English Choral Music. Both joyous & gentle, the pieces are rich in glorious harmonies, underpinned by a delightful Harp score. If you sing in, run a choir, or just love choral music then Carmina Iocunda provides 8 songs of pure delight from the opening Softly the West wind blows, via the beautiful arrangement of ‘Shall I compare thee to a Summers Day‘ to the tingling finale, of Veni Coronaberis.
