MCCABE, J.: Choral Music (Visions) (BBC Singers, Farrington, Hill)

The distinguished composer and pianist John McCabe has written in almost every genre, and has long been one of Britain’s leading musicians. In his choral music he has taken a variety of texts—including anonymous sixteenth-century Latin, and the poems of Henry Vaughan and Thomas Hardy—and fashioned them into powerful settings. He evokes a rich variety of vocal colours and textures, remaining at all times communicative and vital, not least in the beautiful Marian Carols and the contrasting riches of the Mangan Triptych.
