A real pleasure to discover,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macmillan: Miserere/ Tenebrae Responsories/ Strathclyde Motets (Coro: COR16096) (Audio CD)
This CD was advertised in the December copy of "Gramaphone", and, since Macmillan is a composer I've long thought I should become acquainted with, I boughti it.
I'm really pleased with it : the singing is superb, and the music is outstanding! You think you're listening to a "classical" miserere, then the music takes an unexpected direction . There's a slight shock to the system, and then pleasure . I was expecting jangly, discordant , "difficult" music, and instead found beautiful harmony.I'm going to buy more of this composer's work!
