Craig Hella Johnson leads Conspirare on a musical journey along Spain's famous Camino de Compostela in this inspiring performance of 'Path of Miracles' by British composer Joby Talbot.Talbot studied with Simon Bainbridge at the Guildhall and in 2004 was named Classic FM's first Composer in Residence.The Royal Ballet's recent revival of Talbot's 'Alice in Wonderland', played to packed houses and rave reviews.'Joby Talbot was in the band that provided music for that divine comedy Father Ted. After such beatification by association, the only way would seem to be down, yet he continued to produce works of considerable quality and imagination.'Roncesvalles', 'Burgos', 'Leon' and 'Santiago', the movements of Path of Miracles, are named after four points on the Camino Frances, one of the principal pilgrims' routes to Santiago de Compostela. The vivid libretto was compiled by poet Robert Dickinson from medieval texts (including the Carmina Burana), the Psalms and his own original reflections. Those words, and a visit to the main sites along the route, evidently inspired Talbot: this is a work of remarkable range and assurance.'Roncesvalles' opens with eerie, long-held tones in the bass register, gradually hauled up to a radiant chord in the higher voices. The passage was inspired by a technique used in traditional Taiwanese music but one could just as well imagine it as a synthesis of Ligeti and Part. The movement goes on to describe Herod's execution of St James, and the eventual discovery of the body at Compostela, in a rich, agile, vibrant evocation of medieval dances and hymns.Throughout the work Talbot achieves a similarly fertile accommodation between ancient shapes and contemporary colours, moulding often challenging parts into a luminous and uplifting whole.' Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010 'Joby Talbot's ambitious a cappella 'Path of Miracles' is little short of a musical miracle itself... I would go as far to suggest that this is to the first decade of the 21st century what Arvo Part's 'Passio' was twenty years earlier.' Classical Source, City of London Festival, live review [Tenebrae].
