Review quote

am the voice of the wind was commissioned by a member of the Vasari Singers in memory of a daughter who died cruelly young. The composer's ability to find a musical idea apposite to the subject is in evidence here, in this case a fluttering repeated figure in the sopranos that accompanies much of the piece. Textures are clean and pierced through with light, in line with the composer's intention to write a work 'as celebratory as it is memorialising'. * William Hedley, International Record Review, October 2012 *show more

About Gabriel Jackson

Born in Bermuda in 1962 and a prize-winning student while at the Royal College of Music, Gabriel Jackson describes his music as 'essentially contemplative', a quality abundant in his choral works. Jackson's highly individual voice is in demand both here and further afield; his music has been commissioned and performed by a variety of leading ensembles and choirs, among them the Bavarian Radio Choir, The Netherlands Choir, Ars Nova Copenhagen, and Vokal Ensemble Stuttgart, and regularly programmed at prestigious festivals throughout the UK and Europe. Gabriel Jackson became Associate Composer to the BBC Singers in 2010.show more
