DEBBIE WISEMAN (b.1963): Different Voices.
Catalogue Number: 11K109
Description: A new "Young Persons' Guide to the Orchestra" was suggested to Wiseman, a British composer with a great many film and TV scores to her credit, by the general manager of the Royal Philharmonic. If you're into this kind of thing, the themes are attractive, the narration by actor Stephen Fry well-written and -delivered and the story (and brief sung sections) are by famous lyricist Don Black, involving a young girl helping rescue a local park from "evil" developers. Hayley Westenra (solo voice), Stephen Fry (narrator), Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; Debbie Wiseman.
