Sacred vocal works by Graham Gordon Ramsay · Various musicians / Heinrich Christensen · Albany Records TROY1304

"Graham Gordon Ramsay is an American composer, born in 1962, who writes in a contemporary idiom that is sure to appeal to a wide audience. Some pieces are very approachable (e.g. Ave Maria, If you love me, De Profundis); while others, though still tonal and pleasingly expressive, are a little more challenging (Missa Sancti Stephani, Three Psalms, Laudate Dominum). The longest work on this recording is Obedience, a cantata for soprano, baritone and organ, composed in a post-Romantic manner that reminded me a little of the music of Patrick Hadley. This disc is well worth exploring, with performances of a high standard."
