The Shadow Side - contemporary song from Scotland

The Shadow Side - contemporary song from Scotland
ID: DCD34099
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Voices

Irene Drummond, soprano
Iain Burnside, piano

For many years Irene Drummond has been the leading exponent of contemporary song in Scotland. With her partner Iain Burnside -- peerless in this music -- she offers a fascinating snapshot of her repertoire on this recording. From the rarified sparseness of James MacMillan, to the sustained luminosity of Paul Mealor, and the emotionally charged dramatic outbursts of John McLeod, The Shadow Side explores a world of half-lights and visceral intensity.

Sophie Bevan soprano
Andrew Kennedy tenor
Roderick Williams baritone
Iain Burnside piano


Despite a compositional career spanning both World Wars, remarkably little is known about Martin Shaw’s music. It has yet to enjoy the revival of interest that has benefitted the legacies of close friends such as Ralph Vaughan Williams and John Ireland. His songs range from the whimsical and effervescent to the deeply melancholic, and will be a revelation to many. In rescuing these gems from obscurity, Iain Burnside and his singers have given new life to an unjustly neglected figure.

William Berger baritone
Iain Burnside piano

For his solo debut on disc, William Berger has devised an ingenious sequence of seventeen songs describing a sleepless night experienced by a man who reflects on his love for an unnamed woman. From Viennese classicism to fin-de-siècle Romanticism, shadowy English pastoral to the contemporary worlds of Richard Rodney Bennett and Raymond Yiu, this wide-ranging programme is brought to nuanced life by this outstanding young baritone. The indefatigable Iain Burnside provides lucid and imaginative accompaniment. Together, their performances vividly capture the full gamut of nocturnal emotions.

Ailish Tynan soprano
Susan Bickley mezzo-soprano
William Dazeley baritone
Iain Burnside piano

Recorded in the music room of Parry’s boyhood home- Highnam Court in Gloucestershire - this disc sees three of our finest singers shed an illuminating light on an area of the repertoire that has rarely graced the concert hall in recent times. As English song came into full flower at the turn of the twentieth century, Parry's substantial contribution to the genre became somewhat buried. Iain Burnside and his singers rediscover what has been forgotten by historical accident, and what a treasure chest of song they have found! Combining an innately English sensibility with a technical fastidiousness that owes much to the lieder of Brahms, Schumann and Wolf, every one of these songs demonstrates Parry’s fundamental concern for sincerity and proper declamation of the words. Still best known for two short choral works, Hubert Parry is at last undergoing something of a revival, and these beautifully articulated performances return his songs to the heart of his output, where the composer always felt they belonged.

Michael Marra
Mr McFall's Chamber

'Marra's music has broad horizons. His songs' subjects roam across Mull and Shetland, over the Canadian prairies, to Schenectady, New York home of swing-era jazz broadcasting and down into Mexico. But his muse is governed by sound Dundonian principles, including the futility of going in the huff and the folly of vanity.'
- The Herald, May 2010

‘Mr McFall's chamber are the jewel in the Scottish musical crown, continually pushing the envelope of repertoire and style.''
- The Scotsman, June 2010

The Marian Consort:
Gwendolen Martin & Emma Walshe - Sopranos
Rory McCleery Countertenor / Director
Nicholas Scott - Tenor
Steffan Jones, Baritone / Christopher Borrett -Bass

For their debut recording, the six-strong Marian Consort explores music from late sixteenth and early seventeenth-century Spain. This fascinating programme celebrates the rich compositional fruits of the Siglo de Oro’s intensely competitive musical culture. These luminary works - all dedicated to the Virgin Mary - demand performances of great intelligence and vocal commitment. The youthful Marians respond absolutely, bringing hushed intimacy and bristling excitement to some of the most gorgeously searing lines in the history of European polyphony.

Gavin Bryars - The Church Closest to the Sea - Mr McFall’s Chamber
ID: DCD34058
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Voices

The double bass has always been close to Gavin Bryars' heart. His own instrument, it has also featured strongly in his music for other players - as in The Church Closest to the Sea, written for Mr McFall's Chamber and their bassist Rick Standley. Bryars' music straddles worlds: classical and jazz, composition and improvisation, the works on this disc moving between the lushly sensuous and the coolly laid-back as they meditate on geographical and emotional borderlands.
