8th single release from Kalafina featuring the insert theme for Kuroshitsuji II titled ‘Kagayaku Sora no Seijaku niwa‘. The song was used as the ending theme on Episode 8 (ToroShitsuji) when Claude killed Alois.
‘Kagayaku Sora no Seijaku niwa‘ is a sorrowful ballad which I thought was well placed as the outro theme song for episode 8. It conveys the heavy mood and emotion that reflects the tragic consequences from that episode. The orchestration and soaring vocals are moving and mournful. The single also includes a B-side track titled ‘adore‘ which I found myself liking just as much as the titular track if not more. The single is produced by Kajiura Yuki. Where there’s Kalafina music, you know Kajiura will be involved. That said, if you like Kalafina’s brand of contemporary classical infused pop, then you’ll probably enjoy this single.
