The Prize is Still Mine

room 1 ECHOES

Gorey, Wexford, Ireland

ARTISTS: JOHN POWELL & MICHAEL PETRY

In 2012 MAG made a 25th anniversary sound installation at the Palm Springs Art Museum called The Dilemma, which Powell has now reworked for Gospel Choir and Orchestra. From these initial recordings with Gavin Greenaway, Powell knew he could turn the wonderful voices of Judith, Edie and the other singers into something else: and so formed The Prize is Still Mine, a strange mix of styles he has always liked; Gospel & early 20th Century Romanticism. It is composed to a Libretto by Michael Petry and features as the opening to Powell’s album Hubris: Vocal Works by John Powell.

Contributing artists include; Judith Hill, José Serebrier, Edie Lehmann, Philharmonia Orchestra, LA Gospel Session Singers
