Last November Resonus Classics has released In No Strange Land, Martin Bussey’s choral music with Sonoro Choir, Michael Higgins (organ) & Neil Ferris (conductor).
The album has received positive review in the March Gramophone:
… we hear Bussey exploring thicker choral textures, filling out his arching, chant-infused melodies, always rhetorically responsive, with cloudier added-note harmonies.Alexandra Coghlan
This isn’t a Tenebrae or a Polyphony, where blend is paramount, but an ensemble where individual voices push and urge and jostle.
Martin Bussey music is proudly available with Composers Edition, including all works from In No Strange Land’.
