From the Songs of Magical Creatures – four Shakespeare settings – to Kites, Cards and Constellations to settings of Todd’s own words, the Bach Choir under their musical director David Hill respond to Todd’s soundworld with sensitivity and commitment. In the album’s title work, in which Todd collaborated with Michael Rosen (‘a joyous and inspirational experience’, as the composer observes), the Bach Choir are joined by the quite brilliant Finchley Children’s Music Group and the jazz musicians of the Will Todd Ensemble. The result is infectious music-making of the highest order. In short, this CD is a lot of fun.
