Penelope Thwaites: From Five Continents – Choral Music and Songs
From Five Continents introduces the melodious, rhythmically vibrant choral music and songs of Penelope Thwaites. Featuring 19 premiere recordings, From Five Continents celebrates a lifetime of making music around the world to showcase Thwaites’ distinctive compositional signature. The disc’s centrepiece, a moving new Missa Brevis, is coupled with four Psalm settings, songs influenced by the sounds of Indian and African music, folk- tyles from the Americas and an evocation of the vast Australian outback.
