Hello all, I'm new to this list but it has been highly recommended.
I've recently heard several "snippets" of music performed by a boy's
choir. This is a very distinctive sound most often associated -- in my
mind anyway -- with Christmas music. But what I've been hearing (without
any attribution as to composer or performers) is more "modern" and secular
sounding. As I say, it's a distinctive and intriguing sound -- especially
when removed from the "Carols at King's College" context.
There is, of course, the boys' choir section from Britten's "War Requiem",
but this is not what I've heard -- although similar.
Does anyone have suggestions as to what I may have heard (difficult, I
know, with what I given here)??
