August 30, 2018

by Stephen Gamboa-Díaz

We are excited to announce the release of Yale Schola Cantorum’s album of the Brahms Requiem on the Hyperion label. Led by conductor David Hill, Schola performed Ein deutsches Requiem in a chamber ensemble orchestration by Iain Farrington.

Voxtet alumni Natasha Schnur (M.M. ’17), soprano, and Matt Sullivan (M.M. ’18), bass-baritone, feature as soloists on the recording. The chamber ensemble includes Yale School of Music faculty Ettore Causa (viola), Wei-Yi Yang (piano), and alumni Meera Gudipati (flute), Graeme Steele Johnson (clarinet), Ezra Selzter (violoncello), Luke Stence (double bass), and guest artists Julie Eskar (violin) and Olav van Hezewijk (oboe).

This recording marks Schola’s third release on Hyperion. Recordings of Fauré’s Requiem and Palestrina’s Missa Confitebor tibi Domine and other works are also available.
