In Stock: Usually ships in 24 hours. This album of vocal music is my favourite of all the Gavin Bryars recordings to have appeared up to now on Point Music. Like his British contemporary, Howard Skempton, Bryars is primarily concerned to let instruments and voices sound naturally, irrespective of the historical associations that these sounds may sometimes carry. The Hilliard Ensemble, Fretwork, Gavin Bryars - Cadman Requiem: Agnus Dei, Cadman Requiem: In Paradisum, Cadman Requiem: Caedmon . Caedmon Paraphrase Bede, J - Gavin BryarsHilliard EnsemblуFretwork. Gavin Bryars's Cadman Requiem is a somber work, even allowing for its genre. Written for Bill Cadman, a longtime friend of Bryars who died in the 1988 Lockerbie airline bombing, the piece makes miles of thoughtful power out of wavering, long string tones that act as a backdrop for astounding vocals from the Hilliard Ensemble. The slowed physical motions emphasize the piece's gravity, and the strings are scripted just in line with the voices, favoring the low end with bruising effect. I have heard other works of Gavin Bryars, and I was not expecting the music on this album to sound as somber as it does. This is some of the most beautiful music I have listened to, in any genre.
