Jade CDs are widely heard on national and fine music stations throughout Australia, and are recognised as a valuable resource by educational authorities as being uniquely representative of the work of Australian composers. They are manufactured in limited runs of 500 and stocks are therefore may be regarded as collectors' items! All Jade CD covers are distinctive. Most Jade CDs have an anthology format and include works by several composers. It's great to have these CDs on offer for a wider audience at CD Baby. I REMEMBER JADCD 1094 Works by: Eric Gross, Ann Carr-Boyd, Robert Allworth, Richard Austin, Derek Strahan. Duration: 70'18 One of the aims of the Jade label is to preserve Australian musical history by re-mastering and releasing significant recordings. The centrepiece of this release is a live recording made in Christ Church St. Lawrence, Sydney, at the Liturgy on Good Friday in 1979, sung to traditional plainchant with choruses by Tomas Luis de Victoria (1549-1611) by Charles Dale, Donald Haws and Brian Copeland with the Church choir conducted by Colin Sapsford. This is preceded by Allworth's Times Remembered for 3 oboes and two organ works by Eric Gross. The religious theme is also present in solo piano and organ works by Allworth, and No. 4 of Austin's Meditations (for piano) on the Ten Commandments. Secular music is represented by Allworth's 3 piano solos titled after well-known TV soap operas, Carr-Boyd's jazzy piano piece Carl's Motel Music, and 3 of Strahan's satirical songs for voice and guitar written for a Breakfast Show TV spot, and performed by the composer. A larger selection of Strahan's songs can be heard on the CD Take Me To Your Leader RDS004, available at CD Baby.
