Ronald Corp: Things I Didn't Say / Edward Batting, APSARA

Notes & Reviews:

The second disc from Ronald Corp and his chamber choir APSARA is centered on his large a capella work of the same name. A collection of 20 short settings of poetry by Corp's childhood friend Steve Mainwaring, Things I Didn't Say charts the final years of Mainwaring's mother as she suffered from Alzheimer's disease. It is an incredibly personal and poignant work, which will strike resonances with anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one. The remainder of the disc is made up of Corp's settings of Henry Vaughan, Thomas Campion, Laurence Binyon, John Bunyan, and religious texts.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
The title's that of a choral cycle setting 20 poems by Steve Mainwaring about his dying mother. Corp's setting are fluidly melodic and sensitively responsive. Nine shorter pieces also feature.
