Product details

Exquisite, evocative vocal music from a rising star in Australian music. Paul Stanhope is a Sydney musician who is Musica Viva's Featured Composer for 2010. This album brings together some of his loveliest works for choir and for solo voice, with a variety of accompaniments. As Gordon Kerry writes in the CD booklet, 'He does not seek to 'paint' or evoke specific locales, so much as to give a powerful sense of being at ocean's margin, in the hush of a rainforest, or by a lagoon shimmering in the moonlight, and to explore human emotions and feelings in those geographical contexts.'

Duration: 67 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and lyrics.
