Cheryl Frances-Hoad You Promised Me Everything
Catalogue no: CHRCD057
Price: £13.00 (including postage and packaging)
This CD of vocal and choral works by Caian Chery Frances-Hoad includes music written over nearly a decade, from her first choral work There is no rose, to Beowolf, commissioned by the BBC. Beowolf is a song cycle for mezzo soprano and piano performed by Caian Jennifer Johnston.
"from supple assurance... to very funny... to austerely epic... Frances-Hoad's work shows a keen instinct for text-setting..."
"Mezzo Jennifer Johnston is a superb advocate, the glossy depth of her voice matched by the spirited intelligence of her musicality"
