The Dmitri Ensemble / Graham Ross

The four pieces on this disc span three decades of Giles Swayne’s choral music, their striking echoes of Latin plainchant, Tudor polyphony and traditional African music providing contrasting and complementary strands characteristic of this much-travelled composer.

“The Dmitri Ensemble bring the work of this neglected master into focus for the first time and do so with virtuosic swagger.”John Rutter (Producer on this disc)

Magnificat I draws on the music of the Senegalese Jola people and the Ba-Benezele of the Congo. Swayne’s moving threnody, The silent land, scored for 40-part chorus and solo cello, combines words from the Requiem Mass and Christina Rossetti’s poetry, while Stabat mater is dedicated to the grieving mothers of Israel and Palestine.

The Dmitri Ensemble under Graham Ross have previously appeared to great acclaim on the Naxos recording of MacMillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross: “Graham Ross secures outstandingly fervent and finely disciplined results from the youthful Dmitri Ensemble… Plaudits must also go to John Rutter, who is credited with the triple role of producer, engineer and editor.” Gramophone EDITOR’S CHOICE
