Requiem Novum out soon! See and hear Sanctus now!
The most important update this time is by far the release of the album Requiem Novum – a collaboration with my good friend lyric poet Charles Anthony Silvestri.
You can already listen to Sanctus on Spotify and see the same movement performed on Facebook!
It’s such an honor to have this Requiem recorded by the most wonderful ensemble imaginable: soprano Anna Dennis,VOCES8 Foundation Choir (built up by VOCES8 and Apollo5) and the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Barnaby Smith.
The album will be released on the 25th March and a concert version with the ensembles mentioned above will be broadcasted the 17th April as part of the online festival Live from London Easter. I highly recommend you get tickets it will be well worth seeing.

You will find the album at all major online music stores or order it directly from VOCES8 shop.
The sheet music for Requiem Novum will soon be published by Walton Music and will be available in a full score edition, a vocal score, and a version for organ with optional percussion. The a cappella movement Pie Jesu will also be published as a stand-alone edition. You will find all of these at your favorite online retailer.
The Requiem is the second collaboration with VOCES8 following An Elemental Elegy which they commissioned from me and Tony for their 15th anniversary album After Silence which later hit the number one spot on both the American Billboard and the English Official Charts.
The score is available from Bärenreiter Verlag where you also can find most of my music for choir.
The above was all made possible because of the brilliant work made by the fantastic Robin Tyson – my manager since autumn 2019. https://www.podiummusic.org/marten-jansson
To this I am happy to announce that my Missa Popularis for choir and string orchestra now has been performed over a hundred times in, as far as I know, 16 countries and been heard from stages including Carnegie Hall, San Francisco Opera, Cologne Cathedral and Latvian Radio. Finally, I want to express my gratitude to Saint Louis Chamber Chorus for having me as their Composer-in-Residence for the last three years and also to Nazareth College who also hosted me as Composer-in-Residence 2020.
