5.0 out of 5 stars Creative cohabitation for remembrance, 2 Oct 2010

This review is from: Brough: Requiem In Blue (Audio CD)
Harvey has been making and composing music at professional quality since childhood. He has a remarkable ear for a good tune, and for what might fit with what else. On this recording he has brought professional musicians alongside a school choir, classical beside jazz and folk. The pieces have a serious bent; it really is a Requiem, using the ancient words - but with that post modern sensitivity which perceives contemporary meaning and relevence irrespective of religious rejection or acceptance. Let the jazz flugel horn blow you into another world beyond the ancient notes of the 'agnes dei' and find that both the plainsong and the jazz remain utterly themselves, but sit comfortably together. Find contemporary poetry send vibrant new life across dusty concepts of death. In this war obsessed age discover a thoughtful contemporary artistic counterpoint to remembrance.

Fabrisse "Fabrisse" (Washington, DC, United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Brough: Requiem In Blue (Audio CD)
While this won't be in my top ten rotation, Brough's music has a plangent quality that connects fully to the themes.

The final piece on the cd is my favorite.
