ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“PROCESSIONAL” JADCD 1101

Works by: Giovanni Palestrina, Robert Allworth, Geoffrey Allen, Eric Gross, Derek Strahan , Carson P. Cooman.

The CD opens with three organ works written and played by Carson P. Cooman on the organ of the Rochester Christian Reformed Church, Penfield , New York , USA . “Gallery Music: A Processional Fanfare” (2000), is imagined as a procession taking place within a huge “Gallery”, and is dedicated to Jane & Arthur Perrin. “Twilight Undulation” (2001) is based on the plainsong 'Ad dominum dum tribularer clamavi', and written in memory of American composer Robert Starer. “Sunburst: A Recessional Fanfare” (2001) is dedicated to Robert Allworth. An effective musical montage follows alternating works by Palestrina and Allworth, as listed below, and performed respectively by Carson P. Cooman at the organ of the Memorial Church , Harvard University , Cambridge , Massachusetts , USA , and by the Choir of Christ Church St. Lawrence, Sydney, conducted by Colin Sapsford.

Secular works follow. “Serenatella” (1995) by Allen is a romantic piano piece dedicated to his wife. “Rondino Pastorale” (1962) and “Miniature for Ray” (1994) by Gross both feature the Sydney Mandolins. Strahan's “Ironical Rondo” for piano, was begun in 1953 when the composer was at school in Belfast , Northern Ireland , then laid aside to obey dictates to study languages for Cambridge Entrance, and finally revised and completed in 2003. It reflects Strahan's interest then, as now, in using elements of jazz in a formal classical structure. In its final form it includes, as a contrasting episode, a short lyric piece written in London in 1958, titled “Birgitta”, after an attractive brunette. The CD closes with the title track written by Gross in 1972 as a Wedding March, and a religious devotion for organ by Allworth.

Highly recommended!
While the music & ensembles are greatly varied on this disk, ranging from solo organ to choral and not the least of all the Sydney Mandolin ensemble, it is a great listen. The concept of merging Palestrina's Missa Aeterna Christi Munera and Robert Allworth's Visions of Mary Immaculate is captivating. The pieces by Eric Gross and the mandolin ensemble make a wonderful counter-weight to the serious music of Mr. Cooman & Allworth. Only one caveat for the entire disk, I wish the sound stage of the choral tracks were a little more refined.
