This album marks the ORA Singers’ 10th release, presenting a fantasy construction of a Vespers and Benediction service in honor of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. It weaves hypnotic plainchant around Renaissance gems and modern masterpieces. The music of the great Renaissance masters Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Francisco Guerrero, and Felice Anerio sit alongside distinctive voices from the 21st century: James MacMIllan, Julian Anderson, John Joubert, Sven-David Sandström, and Matthew Martin.
