Product description

Product Description

Avie Records and Portsmouth Grammar School are proud to release a brand new recording of new works to mark Remembrance Day featuring the Portsmouth Grammar School Chamber Choir under Music Director, Andrew Cleary, The London Mozart Players conducted by Nicolae Moldoveanu and soloists Alexandra Stevenson (soprano), Sophie Bevan (soprano), Carolyn Dobbin (mezzo-soprano), Ben Johnson (tenor and winner of the latest Kathleen Ferrier Award), Dawid Kimberg (baritone), Michael Chance (countertenor), Sebastian Comberti (cello) and Paul Archibald (trumpet).

Commissioned by Portsmouth Grammar School, the CD features new works for choir and orchestra composed by Cecilia McDowall ("Ave Maris Stella"), Lynne Plowman (world premiere recording of "Cries Like Silence"), Tarik O'Regan (world premiere recording of "And There Was a Great Calm") and Sally Beamish (world premiere recording of "The Lion And The Deer").

The title, "a song more silent" is taken from the E.E.Cummings poem "these children singing in stone" as used in "Cries Like Silence" composed by Lynne Plowman.

Portsmouth Grammar School is uniquely placed to make this recording. The school is located in 19th-century barracks at the heart of a Garrison City, once the location of Richard the Lionheart's palace. Soldiers have been sent around the world from this site for centuries. It has been suggested that more pupils lost their lives in the two World Wars than at any other school of comparable size.

Personnel:
Portsmouth Grammar School Chamber Choir, Andrew Cleary - (music director), London Mozart Players, Nicolae Moldoveanu - (conductor), Michael Chance - (Countertenor), Alexandra Stevenson, Sophie Bevan - (Sopranos), Carolyn Dobbin - (Mezzo Soprano), Ben Johnson - (Tenor), Dawid Kimberg - (Baritone)
