Giles Swayne : Cry

Cry, for 28 solo voices and electronics, is an epic work that describes the creation myth, contrasting intricate rhythmic figures with huge arching phrases, and close dissonances with massive major chords.

"Giles Swayne caused a stir with this gigantic work... with the benefit of hindsight, it is easy to understand why... Excellent singing from the BBC Singers under John Poole."
BBC Music Magazine 1994
