The following audio clips were recorded at live Coriolis performances.

This text will be replaced by the flash music player.

Alleluya, A New Work is Come on Hand
Peter Wishart (1921-1984)
This vibrant, cascading piece with 15th century English text is the third in the British professor’s Three Carols (also including ‘There is No Rose of Such Virtue’ and ‘Lullay, Lay, Lay’). Coriolis has also performed the other two.
Ave Maria
Franz Biebl (1906-2001)
Written in 1964, this combination of the Ave Maria and the Angelus was made famous by San Francisco’s Chanticleer. The German composer and life long educator also set the piece for SATB and SSA ensembles.
Coventry Carol
Arr. Kenneth Leighton (1929-1988)
The traditional carol tells the story of the Massacre of the Innocents from the Gospel of Matthew and was featured in the Coventry Mystery Plays until the late 16th century. Mr. Leighton provides his own dramatic interpretation.
E’en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come
Paul Manz (1919-2009)
This Advent motet contains lyrics written by the Chicago/Minnesota composer’s wife, Ruth. The anthem grew out of their feelings of grief and prayerful hope while at the bedside of their severely ill three year old son.
Illuminare, Jerusalem
Judith Weir (b.1954)
Weir wrote ‘Illuminare’ in 1985 for the world famous men and boys choir of King’s College. (The octavo calls for very brief organ parts which Coriolis has omitted.) The text originates from a 15th century Scottish manuscript.
Jesus Christ the Apple Tree
Elizabeth Poston (1905-1987)
The lyrics were first published in the late 18th century as part of Divine Hymns, or Spiritual Songs by Joshua Smith of New Hampshire. Poston’s beautiful melody is famous the world over for its simplicity and tenderness.
Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming
Arr. David Maddux (b. 1954)
This lush arrangement of a traditional classic is a Coriolis favorite. Mr. Maddux is an active composer, arranger, and conductor as well as a trained chef and synaesthete. You can follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
