Malcolm Williamson

The Brilliant and the Dark (1966)*
April Cantelo, sop; Sally Lesage, sop; Alfreda Hodgson, alto; Norma Procter, alto/ Avalon Singers/ Llewellyn Singers/ English Chamber O/ Antony Hopkins (Readers Digest LP RDS 9351/2, 1977)

I treasured this LP of one of Williamson's most immediately attractive works to a libretto by Ursula Vaughan Williams which charts the role of women throughout certain moments in history. It contains some very powerful and moving sections. Unfortunately I couldn't locate an image of the original release, so here's the vocal score... vinyl copy vanished decades ago but luckily there is a recording in the archive.
