Jeremy Gill: Book of Hours

Album Summary

>Gill, Jeremy : Book of Hours, for piano
>Gill, Jeremy : Helian, for voice & piano
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The two works on this recording are concerned with time-cycles: Book of Hours with the ordering of days, Helian with the changing of seasons. Book of Hours uses the medieval Book of Hours, a devotional book containing prayers and psalms, for its structure while Helian is a setting of a poem by Georg Tralk and is concerned with years, not days. Active as a composer, conductor and pianist, Jeremy Gill studied at the Eastman School of Music and at the University of Pennsylvania. He has received awards from BMI, ASCAP, Meet the Composer and the American Symphony Orchestra League. He is Music Director of the Delaware County Symphony. This is the second release on Albany Records devoted to his music.

"Jeremy Gill is a comer in the world of new music. He is, like the best of his contemporaries, unconcerned with stylistic battles concerning things like tonality, historicism, or audience pandering. He uses whatever tools are available and useful, and has managed to find his own voice. It is one well worth listening to." -Fanfare
