    I have the award-winning recording "DEO" by St John's College Choir. It won an award so might be worth acquiring for anyone interested in Harvey's works.

    Although I can tell it's good, it's not really my cup of tea tbh.

    Tulse just mentioned him and piqued my interest. I've started by listening to Ritual Melodies, courtesy of YouTube. I loved it; it reminded me somewhat of Murail.

    More will be investigated for sure.

    I hadn't heard of him until a few days ago when he had a fine work playing on Radio 3. Disappointingly I didn't catch the name of it.

    I like this one though. It's called 'Messages'.



    He seemed to eschew self-promotion, which may explain why he is not more widely known. I'll try to listen to some more before too long.

    Strangely enough, I started playing this CD



    about 10 minutes before I noticed this thread.

    I find him a rewarding composer. Plenty of stuff on Youtube to check him out.

    This is one of my favourite purchases from 2017:



    I think he is considered a sort of spectralist composer, with a strong influence on his composition also from his Buddhist philosophy. Here his string chamber works are played by the combo for whom they were originally written (I'm not sure about the Trio, actually). They are delightful, and this is very attractive music.

    I've just rustled up a hefty Harvey playlist on Spotify; there's lots of his music on there.

    Mmmmmmm........spectralism......

    It might be helpful for us to have a Composer Guestbook within the Religious Forum. Why not just see what happens for a bit?

    Great composer, highly recommendable. I have championed his music before and will do it again!





    'Best' works (subjective, of course):
    -Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco
    -Body Mandala
    -Speakings
    -Messages

    Thanks for your recommendations.

    I listened to both of these yesterday. Stunning.

    I've lined up five CDs of Harvey's music already, and I'm holding Tulse directly responsible for this financial haemorrhaging.

    Oh dear, we are now competing against the 'Exploring Contemporary Composers' thread. I'll dig out some Abrahamsen while I listen to Body Mandala.

    I'm avoiding that thread for just such a reason
