Campkin: Choral Works - True Light
Format: COMPACT DISC
Crown, David; Spinks, Colin; vOx Chamber Choir; Fry, Tristan
Alexander Campkin is renowned as a leading young choral composer who has been commissioned by some of the most prestigious musical organizations in Britain. True Light reveals the energy and majestic sound world that he commands, as well as qualities of reflective intimacy. His Missa Brevis was inspired by seeing a beam of sunlight pierce a cloud of moving incense, the resultant music being built around a sustained pitch, ebbing and flowing. In The First Kiss, he sets two poignant and daring Epigrams by the Greek philosopher Strato.
