New CD - Edie Hill

The choral music of Minnesota-based composer Edie Hill (New York, 1962) shines on CLAY JUG, an album of her choral work spanning 15 years. It is a compendium of large and small works for a cappella choir and choir accompanied by chamber ensemble. Though the works featured on CLAY JUG vary in scope, they all demonstrate Hill’s keen sensitivity to ensemble texture and harmonic density, as well as the incorporation of text across four languages. Working from a broad color palate to create atmosphere, motion, and drive within the confines of strong structure, she creates a signature “sustained intensity” and sense of urgency. Hill beckons, dares - almost demands - that the audience “listen!”
