Notes and Editorial Reviews

RPS Award-winning British composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad releases her fourth album with Champs Hill Records, a compilation of chamber orchestral, chamber and solo piano works inspired by composers from the past. Cheryl Frances-Hoad explains the meaning behind the album: ''Throughout my composing life I have found myself continually looking to composers from the past in order to create something new. This album...is united by the theme of 'homage': each piece, although I hope clearly recognizable as my own, involved immersing myself in the language of another composer in order to write it.'' Admired for her originality and fluency, Cheryl Frances-Hoad has been composing to commission since she was fifteen. Cheryl's music has received critical Read more acclaim, being described as ''like a declaration of faith in the eternal verities of composition'' (The Times) with ''a voice overflowing not only with ideas, but also with the discipline and artistry necessary to harness them'' (The Scotsman).
