Dunedin Consort made its Linn debut with this stunning recording of a cappella vocal music by America's two most famous 20th century composers: Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber. The Dunedin Consort's programme demonstrates the common ground both Copland and Barber shared: in their settings for unaccompanied chorus, each had an instinctive feel for the human voice, a natural gift for word-setting, and a pure style of writing that rarely, if ever, obscured its literary dimension. This moving disc features a beautiful vocal arrangement of Samuel Barber's celebrated Adagio for Strings. Aaron Copland's In the beginning, featuring mezzo-soprano Sally Bruce Payne, is beautifully simple with lilting Britten-like polytonality and infectious jazz rhythms and soft hints of blues.
