Celebrated troughout Europe as the foremest English composer of his time, Peter Philips drew upon many different musical traditions to create a hugely expressive body of work which is still largely unknown. A recording which transforms silence into sound, sound into emotion, emotion into colour and colour into poetry.
What the press says :
“one glimpses an admirably rounded composer here, but just as engaging is the ebullience with which the music is brought to life : massed voices and instruments, quasi-orchestral effects that don’t sound at all forced despite having been carefully planned ; and a
marked exuberance in the embellishment of melodic lines.” Fabrice Fitch, Gramophone Magazine, April 2009.
