Canti Augustini, Magnus Es Domine, Invocabo Deum (World Première)

“….For Alexander Levine’s two settings of prayers by St Augustine – Magnus est Domine and Invocabo Deum (the latter being a world première) – the group found a more communicative tone, and their involvement with the composer and his creations showed in their animation and in the expressive delivery of these charming works, that are half Catholic and half Orthodox in sensibility: composites of rhythmic chanting and slower passages sprinkled with twinkling note clusters – the hybrid offspring of Duruflé and Pärt, perhaps.”
