Recording: BIS SACD 1719, by Netherlands Radio Choir, conducted by Celso Antunes.
“The music itself was a revelation: a mesmeric blending of traditional and contemporary elements … a choral array of chanting and whispering, of shouting and speaking, of whistling and controlling disparate lines so that they wondrously merged … The co-creator of Sun-Dogs was British poet Michael Symmons Roberts who addresses theological and mythical symbolisms. Dogs, beggars, suns and stars turn into metaphors … The whole settled upon the ears like magic …” Indiana Herald-Times.
Suitable for advanced standard choirs.
