About the album

This latest CD of music by Ronald Corp OBE is an inspired mixture of settings of Francis Booth’s cycle of poems interspersed with Corp’s own arrangements of John Dowland lute songs. Inspired by the starkness and directness of the poetry of his long-time collaborator Booth, Corp has scored the work for counter-tenor (beautifully performed by rising star Magid El-Bushra) with a halo-like accompaniment of vibraphone, flute and cello. The juxtaposition of these new songs sung by a counter-tenor against Dowland’s 17th century music realized in modern arrangements is a revelation, shedding new light on the older works, which in turn reverberate through Corp’s songs.

Alte Traditionen und Moderne: Lieder von Ronald Corp.

Ronald Corp, englischer Komponist, verarbeitete einen Gedichtzyklus seines Landsmanns Francis Booth für Countertenor, Vibraphon, Flöte und Cello. Er kombinierte diese Lieder mit eigenen Arrangements der Lautenlieder von John Dowland.
Der immer noch durchscheinende Stil des 17. Jahrhunderts in modernem Gewand und die schillernden Lieder Corps ergänzen sich in inspirierender Weise und werden kongenial interpretiert vom einem neuen Gesangs-Talent, dem Countertenor Magid El-Bushra.
