Product details

Angeli Vocal ensemble, pianist Michael Kieran Harvey, chamber choir Ensemble Gombert, and the Four Seasons String Quartet perform the music of Melbourne composer Vaughan McAlley. It is a fascinating exploration of music written for 4 parts, and up to 40 parts in Vaughan's unique approach to counterpoint.

When not working as a sound-engineer at Move Records, Vaughan McAlley is a singer and composer. His music is sonorous, and he likes to explore the expressive potential of counterpoint. Music from 4 to 40 parts is a representative sample of his compositions from 2001 to 2015, performed by the Angeli Vocal ensemble, pianist Michael Kieran Harvey, chamber choir Ensemble Gombert, and the Four Seasons String Quartet. His epic motet Omnes angeli may be the first fully-polyphonic 40-part piece since Thomas Tallis wrote Spem in alium in 1570.

Liner includes programme notes and copy of texts.
