James MacMillan - Cappella Nova - Klassik.com


07 December 2007

4½ Stars

Schwerelos schwebende Sopranstimmen, posaunenhaft strahlende Tenöre und orgel-mächtige Bässe. Mikrotonale Klangschritte, ausschweifende Klanggesten, polyphone Vielstimmigkeit. James MacMillans Vokalmusik bewegt sich irgendwo zwischen Arvo Pärt und der Polyphonie der Renaissance.
