Colin Matthews : The Great Journey



Matthews's The Great Journey, a forceful and panoramic narrative of a 16th-century Spanish expedition to America, is complemented by the scherzo Fuga and Night's Mask, a darkly atmospheric setting of Fernando Pessoa's brooding sonnet.

"A fizzing display of musical energy for which its composer is renowned... baritone David Wilson-Johnson and The Nash Ensemble acquit themselves superbly."
BBC Music Magazine 1997
