Notes & Reviews:

Cheryl Frances-Hoad has a unique and special compositional voice, recently becoming the youngest composer to win two prizes in the same year at the British Composer Awards, in 2010.
Champs Hill Records is delighted to present this collection of Cheryl's chamber music, performed in many cases by the musicians who commissioned and gave the premiere performances of the works including Nicholas Daniel (oboe), the Lenvai String Trio, the Kriesler Ensemble, Leonid Gorokhov (cello), the London Mozart Trio, Ensemble na Mara, and others.
The songs of the title work on this disc - The Glory Tree - are arresting settings, in original Anglo- Saxon, from The Dream of the Rood and Judith, treated as the utterances of Shamanic ritual.
Shamanism also provides the inspiration for the solo violin work The Snow Woman written for, and played here by, Natalia Lomeiko.
