Unthemed anthologies of new music can be a difficult sell, but Brett Scott’s Coro Volante set about these recent pieces with such enthusiasm and confidence that it’s hard not to be beguiled. It doesn’t hurt that there’s some real talent on show among the composers as well. It’s important to make clear that these aren’t all very young composers. Ellen Harrison has been making remarkable music since the 1970s and her Music Is, which ends the set,represents a most welcome addition to her list. Likewise the veteran Alan Goldspiel with Soldier Of Mine, and Tim Knight’s moving Requiem Aeternam. There isn’t a piece one wouldn’t want to hear again. Crisply recorded in generous acoustics.
