Product details

Tall Poppies is delighted to present a second disc of Clare Maclean's choral music. Clare is one of the few Australian composers creating an oeuvre of a cappella choral music, mostly inspired by her deep religious beliefs. Her music is always accessible with its exquisite harmonies and clarity in illuminating her texts. Her deep understanding of what is satisfying for choirs to sing comes from her years as a member of the Sydney Chamber Choir.

The following words about her first CD (TP073) from an Amazon customer say it all:
"I was first exposed to Clare Maclean's choral music while singing in my university chamber choir. At the time, I didn't know the effect it would have on me; however, I came to realize that it's the kind of music that, once heard, stays with you. Maybe it's because her voice as a composer is so uniquely female, or because it expresses such a universal spirituality. Whatever the reason, this is some of the most glorious music I have ever heard."

Duration: 51 min.

Liner notes include program notes, song texts, and biographical notes on the composer.
