Produced by Imperativa Records, an offshoot of Immediate Music, Globus: Epicon is an “epic rock” hybrid of film trailers with added rock band and solo vocals. Epic is definitely the word!
The Purcell Singers feature on about half of the tracks in Globus: Epicon, Trailerhead and Trailerhead: Saga. Trivia fans may be interested to know that the choir in Imperativa’s Excelsius CD, featuring music by Larry Groupé, is not The Purcell Singers, but it was conducted by Mark Ford...
Classical Evolutions 1
Classical Evolutions is the sound of classical music evolved.
The CDs are a collection of exceptional and sophisticated works which draw inspiration from and pay homage to some of the greatest composers from the Baroque and Classical periods, such as Purcell, Handel, Bach and Vivaldi. The tracks range from dramatic, proud, rousing anthems to expressive, romantic and heartfelt themes.
The works were recorded at Angel Studios and feature performances by some of Britain’s top musicians with a forty-five-piece orchestra, virtuosic solo violin and a sixty-voice choir.

The first of two albums from leading licensing library KPM exploring the metamorphosis of operatic and classical sounds into progressive re-mixes. These tracks may be familiar to you as they have been heard extensively on British television and radio.

Another commercial CD for KPM, this features an unparalleled collection of traditional carols and seasonal songs from Great Britain, Eire, the USA, France and Germany in new arrangements for choir and organ. The disc includes both well-loved favourites and lesser known works, and three tracks feature the baritone Stephen Varcoe as soloist.
