Karl Jenkins: The making of Stella natalis
This video podcast explores the making of Karl Jenkins’s EMI album release, Stella natalis, featuring two new choral collections with seasonal themes.
The first work on the new EMI release, Stella natalis, comprises twelve Jenkins pieces celebrating aspects of Christmastide – winter, the sleeping child, tidings of peace, thanksgiving – with words ranging from the Psalms to new texts by Carol Barratt. The second work, Joy to the World, casts the net internationally, assembling nine traditional carols from Germany, France, Spain and the Caribbean, in new arrangements by Jenkins. The new recording features the voices of Tenebrae, and guest appearances by soprano Kate Royal, trumpeter Alison Balsom and BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the year Alice Halstead.
