Two works concerned with time cycles from Jeremy Gill.

The two works on this recording are concerned with time-cycles: Book of Hours with the ordering of days, Helian with the changing of seasons. Book of Hours uses the medieval Book of Hours, a devotional book containing prayers and psalms, for its structure while Helian is a setting of a poem by Georg Trakl and is concerned with years, not days. Active as a composer, conductor and pianist, Jeremy Gill studied at the Eastman School of Music and at the University of Pennsylvania. He has received awards from BMI, ASCAP, Meet the Composer and the American Symphony Orchestra League. He is Music Director of the Delaware County Symphony. This is the second release on Albany Records devoted to his music.

Review:
"I am quite impressed with the power and craft of [Jeremy Gill's] work... It is good to have this recording, and I hope that other adventuresome pianists will bring this music before the public." (Fanfare)

"...Jeremy Gill writes music that evokes the ancient power of the art..." (Philadelphia City Paper - Top Classical Albums of 2011)
