Giles Swayne: Convocation

  • INFO

When a powerful team of new music exponents come together, magic will happen; when the music is by Giles Swayne, a composer whose light shines brilliantly in its own unique direction, the results will entrance. This disc offers a bracing sonic experience – vividly communicative music performed with rare verve, passion and youthful vibrancy.

"The two choirs on this disc… enter whole-heartedly into the spirit of the music."


"The stark mixture of menace and lament (A Convocation of Worms) is a gift for a composer with Swayne’s propensity for questioning received social and religious conventions from the inside…the effect of the whole is powerful and memorable. Stephen Wallace and Michael Bonaventure do it proud…this is a highly commendable enterprise.”

"The young singers and those who have worked with these choirs as educators and directors are to be congratulated on their standard of performance in these interesting and challenging works."
