Giles Swayne's works for cello exhibit an astonishing array of moods and colours. The restless beauty of Four Lyrical Pieces and strident romanticism of the Sonata offer remarkable counterpoint to his sublime Suite for solo cello. Canto seduces us with its intoxicating symbiosis of traditional African and Western art music.

Four Lyrical Pieces, Op. 6
Suite No. 1 for solo cello, Op. 111
Sonata for cello and piano, Op. 103
Canto for cello, Op. 31

Sacred music by contemporary composers

Includes Tavener World Premiere Recording

Signum Records is delighted to announce the release of Tenebrae's second disc, Mother and Child
Tenebrae has, in its short existence, made a considerable impact with fresh and vital re-interpretations of classic works in the choral repertoire. On this new recording, innovatory and lesser-known repertoire is drawn from contemporary sources, reflecting an exploratory approach which places the group artistically at the cutting edge.
This is a distinctive and distinguished collection of works by a number of living composers, many of whom have established themselves at the creative forefront of the choral scene in recent times.

Five of the tracks are world premier recordings:
Francis Pott: The souls of the righteous Sir John Tavener: Mother and Child Alexander L’Estrange: Lute-book lullaby Jeremy Filsell: O be joyful in the Lord Francis Pott: My song is love unknown

The centre-piece of the disc is a new commission - Mother and Child - by from the world acclaimed composer Sir John Taverner.

The universal aspect of motherhood is an idea to which Tavener has returned again and again in his music. Behind this concept lies that of infinite theophanic light, an idea common to all religious traditions. Tavener’s music here interpolates a poem by Brian Keeble with Greek and Sanskrit quotations, the latter in a climactic outburst. The music, having grown in crescendo, is joined by massive organ chords and develops to become an overwhelming pulsating texture at the climax, with awesome strokes sounded on a large Hindu temple gong. The clamour dissipates at the final invocation, ‘Hail Maria’, which is prayerful and contemplative.
