Laurence Kilsby - Mozart: Vesperae solennes de confessore; Coronation Mass
Mozart: Vesperae solennes de confessore; Coronation Mass (Delphian Records DCD34102, CD) March 2013
Featuring Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum   Laurence Kilsby  
W.A. Mozart: Coronation Mass, Ave Verum Corpus & Solemn Vespers of the Confessor

Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum and Charivari Agréable come together for the first time in vividly communicative interpretations of three of Mozart’s sacred masterpieces. The forces are very much as Mozart intended – a period orchestra, an all-male chorus and soloists (including 2009 BBC Chorister of the Year Laurence Kilsby) drawn from the choir. Under Benjamin Nicholas’s spirited direction these performances bristle with energy and the invigorating freshness of youth.

Laurence Kilsby treble; Jeremy Kenyon, alto; Christopher Watson, tenor; Christopher Borrett, bass. Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, cond. Benjamin Nicholas. Charivari Agréable, Kah-Ming Ng, director.

Laurence Kilsby - Songbook
Songbook (Delphian DCD34097/ISBN B0058NNGBE, CD) August 2011
Featuring Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum   Laurence Kilsby  
This ‘songbook’ is unique to the Schola Cantorum choristers of Tewkesbury Abbey. “Essentially, it's a showcase for the Abbey trebles,” their Director of Music Benjamin Nicholas explains. “We’ve been assembling our own Songbook for quite a while now – the songs the trebles sing, from time to time, in boys-only concerts, and that they are taught in individual singing lessons. I’ve always been keen to build each boy up as a soloist, not necessarily with the express idea of them singing lots of solos, but so that they can learn to sing in a soloistic way.”

This is evident most of all in the distinctive singing of 11- year-old Laurence Kilsby, whose gifts won him the BBC Chorister of the Year competition in 2009. On this recording, he features as soloist in two Shelley settings by Roger Quilter, the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria and in John Ireland’s beautiful, sincerely-felt Passiontide motet Ex Ore Innocentium from 1944.
