Tall Poppies

Sydney Chamber Choir
Nicholas Routley - director

A collection of recent Australian choral music, mostly by younger composers. It's good to see that choral writing is alive and well in Australia. Each work make a strong statement, each with a variety of choral techniques and styles. "Logos" is a dramatic work written by the 2001 winner of the Paul Lowin Award for a Song cycle. The choir's director has contributed a short work in which the choir is accompanied by a solo vibraphone (Tim Paillas). "Memory Pieces" is a long piece based on a short piece of stream-of-consciousness prose by Ania Walwicz - it is a beguiling work. The title of this CD comes from Stanhope's work, which he conducts in this recording. It is a setting of poems of Michael Dransfield.
