Cecilia McDowallSTABAT MATER

Cecilia McDowall
STABAT MATER

Cecilia McDowall is widely acknowledged as one of Britain's most popular and successful composers. Her breadth of experience in performing, teaching and composing has helped to develop an original and distinctive style that speaks directly to both listeners and performers with a life-affirming, restorative strength. This is her third release on the Dutton Epoch label, and comprises beautiful original compositions that set various texts. Indeed, McDowall's skill in word setting has made her one of the finest composers of her generation of vocal and choral music. The Stabat Mater takes as its inspiration twelve of the fourteen verses of the Stabat Mater dolorosa from the Liber Usualis, while On Angel's Wing is a setting of John Clare's poem Love lies beyond the tomb, interspersed with plainchant taken from the Vatican Prefaces. This exquisite and exotic work audaciously juxtaposes sensitive lyricism in its solo writing with choral passages of great passion and joy. Each of the chosen texts for Three Latin Motets, for unaccompanied SSATB choir, is addressed to the Virgin Mary. Annunciation is a spaciously expressive carol for Advent for unaccompanied SSATB choir, and Deus, qui claro lumine is a setting of the Vesper hymn. The disc ends with the enchanting Lonely Hearts. Delicately scored for SSAA chorus, flute, clarinet, harp, violin, viola and cello, it sets three poems by the novelist Christie Dickason, each offering a different perspective on the theme of being alone.
