Contrapunctus Early Music traces the evolution of sacred music for sopranos, altos and countertenors chronologically, via chant from the 9th century, Peter Abelard (1079-1142), and then onto Perotin (1160-1230). They continue through the centuries from Dufay (1397-1474), to Clemens non Papa (1510-1556), and Sethus Calvisius (1556-1615); through the 17th century to Valls (1665-1747), Bruckner (1824-1896), and Brahms (1833-1897); then into the 20th century with a haunting countertenor duet by Geoffrey Burgon (1941-2010). Works by Bob Chilcott (b.1955) and Ola Gjeilo (b.1978) are representative of living composers, in addition to a premier work by the outstanding English composer Graham Keith.
