Helen-Jane Howells (soprano), Michael Chance (countertenor), Ben Alden (tenor), Joanna Shaw (flute), Andrew Plant, Alissa Firsova (piano), James Boyd (guitar); Navarra String Quartet. This disc of vocal and chamber pieces by Joseph Phibbs, a former pupil of Birtwistle’s, marks another welcome instalment in NMC’s excellent Debut Discs series. The relatively spartan textures of these pieces are more convincing than some of Phibbs’s writing for larger ensembles. These works draw you in with a well-judged pacing of their sometimes frenetic activity and mesmerising stillness
