Set Upon the Rood

Catalogue no: DCD34154  

Price: £13.00 (including postage and packaging)

This CD of new music for choir and ancient instruments features seven richly conceived new pieces and four members of the European Music Archaeology Project: Piper Barnaby Brown, who joined the choir for In Praise of St Columba, the lyre-player Bill Taylor and ancient brass specialists John and Patrick Kenny who introduce the listener to the mysterious sound-world of the Carnyx.

"Suddenly sound and music exist in a single sonic continuum and the effect is exhilarating – both ancient and fundamental but undeniably modern... This is a disc that will leave you bewildered in the best possible way, assaulted and seduced by deeply unfamiliar sounds." Gramophone
