Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Michael Finnissy is among the leading composers of our generation, and this CD forms part of the Metier Finnissy cycle, still ongoing. Finnissy wrote 'This Church' in 2001-3 to celebrate the 900th anniversary of St. Mary de Haura, New Shoreham, on the Sussex coast. This church and the evolving community around it is typical of countless others across Britain. Its story exemplifies the history of Christianity from Norman times to the present.


This is a remarkable document of a remarkable large-scale piece that, in all likelihood, won't be performed again. this piece owes everything to the performers it was written for. The professionals sound like professionals, the amateurs sound like amateurs, and they are wonderful together. But it enjoys the additional virtues of a taut structure and some real passion and humanity. We're lucky indeed they made this recording. --American Record Guide

Texts of endless interest and fascination, the words … underpinned with evocative music which makes the whole greater than the sum of its disparate parts. an ambitious, but at the same time economical and unpretentious, oratorio for our times… utterly compelling --Musical Pointers

The courage of Finnissy's This Church in challenging preconceived notions of new music stood out like a beacon --The Wire
