Debut solo album by Liverpool-based composer and performer Jonathan Hering. An album of DIY renaissance and new music where one voice sings all the parts. Carmina Chromatico features twelve polyphonic vocal tracks all sung by Hering using his bass to counter-tenor range and presenting renaissance and contemporary compositions for up to 8 vocal lines. The album spans six hundred years featuring music from the renaissance avant-garde to his own long-form composition "Lachrymose." With his DIY sensibilities Jonathan sings every part in his own voice. Inspired in part by counter-tenor Klaus Nomi's spine chilling rendition of Henry Purcell's "The Cold Song," Hering has selected music which sweeps and wallows, clashing chromatic suspensions evoking dark and light and dissonant wavering chords connecting him to composers up to 600 years his senior, but with the voice as the key device in common. Hering creates an intimate vocal album embracing his love of dissonant, chromatic and exquisite harmonies, performances of which are normally confined to the formalities of the classical recital. Carmina Chromatico gives way to one voice creating renaissance music for all ears.
