Notes & Reviews:

William Hawley (b. 1950) is one of the central figures in today's American choral music renaissance. As a student at Ithaca College and the California Institute of the Arts, he composed avant-garde instrumental works, and even flirted with minimalism. The launch of his Two Motets in 1981 demonstrated a shift to vocal music and a more emotionally direct style. His continuing American choral music has helped establish compositional trends since adopted by Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, and the like. Winner: American Prize in Choral Performance and the Margaret Hillis Award.

Gary Davison is an American composer influenced by that tradition - in particular, the choral tradition at Wells Cathedral. The choir is a blend of girls, countertenors, tenors, and basses; it performs this music in an exemplary manner. Sonics are good on all these releases.
