RIZZA, M.: Choral Works (Mysterium amoris) (Gaudete Ensemble, Dougan)

Margaret Rizza sang professionally for twenty-five years, before teaching at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She has directed music groups, making many recordings. She began composing in 1997 and has since earned huge admiration for her ‘Classical Contemporary’ sound world, works of spiritual contemplation and great beauty. Hers is music of great spiritual depth and, whether a cappella or for vocal and instrumental forces, it generates a sense of lyricism and healing resolution.
