About the Author

Gabriel Jackson was born in Bermuda. After three years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral he studied composition at the Royal College of Music. Jackson's music has been commissioned, performed and broadcast worldwide, and his works have been presented at many festivals including Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Spitalfields, and the BBC Proms. His liturgical pieces are in the repertoires of many of Britain's cathedral and collegiate choirs, and his choral works in general have been recorded by some of the world's leading choirs including Polyphony, The Vasari Singers, The State Choir of Latvia, and Merton College Choir, Oxford. He is currently the Associate Composer to the BBC Singers, who have premiered and broadcast a number of recent commissions. Over recent years Jackson's music has been equally focussed on instrumental works. Commissions include works for organist Michael Bonaventure, Red Note Ensemble, and the Lunar Sax Quartet.

Reviews

The songs are well contrasted in mood, yet Jackson's fondness for snapped rhythms forms a thread running through all three pieces. The final setting ends with a rather abrupt and short twist from three flats back to one sharp, but this aptly reflects the dynamic of the sonnet with its fractured final two lines, and the simultaneous thinning of the texture also works well as an expression of the lover's predicament . . . Both new sets by Jackson and McDowall [When time is broke] offer much for an audience to enjoy, and the singers too, being welcome additions to the contemporary partsong repertoire in which all voices take an equal part in singing the song. * Geoffrey Webber, Church Music Quarterly, May 2017 *
