Sunday Express -- 4 stars -- "McAlmont’s stunningly diverse vocal range takes centre stage"Nov 1st, 2009
Ambitious collaboration between classical composer Michael Nyman and extraordinary vocalist David McAlmont,with the singer adapting existing pieces from Nyman and adding his lyrics about recent world news. So the title track is
about Susan Boyle’s dramatic entrance on Britain’s Got Talent, while City of
Turin focuses on trafficked prostitution and Friendly Fire is concerning assisted suicide.
McAlmont’s stunningly diverse vocal range takes centre stage throughout, but Nyman’s music is a sympathetic partner.
