“A sequence for the souls of the departed, to be heard by those who remember them” is how director Owain Park characterizes this latest release from The Gesualdo Six. Lux aeterna is a poignant reflection on the perennial themes of sorrow and consolation, given eloquent expression in the works of fourteen composers from the sixteenth century and the present day. Stylistic plurality is only to be expected from a program which places Howard Skempton and Richard Rodney Bennett next to Cristóbal de Morales, and this is, in short, another example of the inspired programming we have come to expect from Owain Park and The Gesualdo Six.
