KARL JENKINS Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary LP Blue Vinyl NEW 2017
In caelum fero
The ground-breaking Adiemus concept album is just as potent today as it was on its release in 1995.
Produced by composer Karl Jenkins (ex Nucleus, Soft Machine), perhaps best-known for The Armed Man – A Mass for Peace
Originally produced for a TV commercial, subsequent sales reached the dizzy heights of c.1.5 million albums
Featuring the vocals of Miriam Stockley, Adiemus remains a highly unique concept, contemporary and uplifting sound –
An irresistible genre-defying fusion of classical, ethnic, and electronic music forms
The origins of the Adiemus concept dates back to 1994 when Welsh composer Karl Jenkins (and former member of the 1970’s jazz-rock group Nucleus and the progressive rock band Soft Machine), was approached to produce the music for the Delta Airlines “Synchronised Flying” TV commercial, directed Hugh Hudson of (Chariots of Fire).
