The Silver Stars at Play

December 18th, 2017

My work Susanni (2015) will be released on a CD entitled The Silver Stars at Play on Prima Facie Records on the 24 November 2017. The recording is made by the Manchester-based Kantos Chamber Choir conducted by Elspeth Slorach, and features contemporary carols by Maxwell Davies, McCabe, Frances-Hoad, Rimkus and many others. The work was first performed by the choir.

18/12/17: Nice review at theartsdesk.com which states the CD has ‘barely a dud note in the collection.’

18/12/17: Another good review at compositiontoday.com which singles my piece out as having ‘a ritualistic feel that builds convincingly on its dialogue between solo voices and choir.’

18/12/17: And a final good review at the website 5against4.com which suggests Susanni ‘pushes harder, letting rip in forceful outbursts that contrast with plainsong-like material.’
