    Lesley-Jane Rogers (soprano); John Turner (recorder);
    Peter Lawson (piano); Gemini, directed by Martyn Brabbins

    David Lumsdaine's work is mostly rooted in Australia where he was born, though he now lives in the UK. This unique and intriguing set includes pieces for a variety of instruments (not all are vocal) a number of which relate to the Australian landscape and the sounds of its unique wildlife - which are also captured in live 'outback' recordings demonstrating the voices of the birds and creatures which inspired some of the works.
    The music itself is most approachable and well written. Definitely an important addition to the modern music repertoire.
