Dillon/ Fox/ Maw/ Redgate &c : A roaring flame

A disc showcasing new works for double bass, solo and with voice or cello: from the title work, Dillon's setting of Gaelic poetry for soprano & bass, to Maw's characterful Old King's Lament.

"[In James Dillon's 'A Roaring Flame'] the Gaelic and Provencal texts and sinuous vocal line give the music a haunting beauty, which is realised with superb concentration by both performers."
BBC Music Magazine 2004
