The Music of Richard Pantcheff Volume 2 Orchid Classics with London Choral Sinfonia

The second volume of the CD The Music of Richard Pantcheff has been released by Orchid Classics featuring performances by the London Choral Sinfonia directed by Michael Waldron, with tenor Nick Pritchard, and Peter Mankarious on trumpet and flugelhorn.

The music of Richard Pantcheff Volume 2 follows the highly successful release, in September 2020, of Volume 1 of this series. Like its predecessor disc, Volume 2 will contain Richard Pantcheff’s Choral music, although this time accompanied by orchestra rather than organ. Two of the works on the disc are scored for tenor solo and strings, while two further works on the disc are arrangements for flugelhorn and strings of works originally written for organ.

Following the immediate success of Volume 1 (which went straight into the Gramophone Classical Chart at number 12 in the week of its release last year), one of the tracks of Volume 2, A Prayer of St. Columba, is already on three of Apple Music’s global playlists – Sacred Sounds, Relaxing Classical, and New Classical.

This CD represents a further stage in the ongoing collaboration between the London Choral Sinfonia, Orchid Classics, and Richard Pantcheff in the concert and recorded performance of his compositions.
