Karl Jenkins: Symphonic Adiemus

Karl Jenkins is the UK’s most popular contemporary composer, and one of Wales’ most versatile and critically-acclaimed musicians.

He is perhaps best-known today for the Adiemus project. The 1994 album Adiemus: Songs Of Sanctuary, described by Jenkins as “an extended choral-type work based on the European classical tradition, but where the vocal sound is more akin to ‘ethnic’ or ‘world’ music.”

Nickchapman studio were commissioned by Universal Records to come up with a creative and ethereal sleeve for Symphonic Adiemus. The final sleeve has a haunting thought provoking feel and encompasses the ‘ethnic’ influences with a tree from the african plains of the Serengeti.
