Notes & Reviews:

George Vass conducts the Choir of Merton College, Oxford, the Ulster Orchestra and Orchestra Nova in Dutton Epoch's fifth CD devoted entirely to the music of Cecilia McDowall. The featured works, all recent and receiving their world première recordings, range from a sultry setting for soloists baritone Jeremy Huw Williams and violinist Tamás Kocsis of darkly evocative poems by Seán Street celebrating the tango, to a lively and inventive orchestral response to a painting by Turner depicting a train steaming across Maidenhead Viaduct. Also included in this richly diverse program is the atmospheric choral tribute Shipping Forecast and Crossing the Bridge, an evocative depiction of bridges in Central Europe, London and New York.
