Notes & Reviews:

Joby Talbot studied with Simon Bainbridge at the Guildhall and in 2004 was named Classic FM's first Composer in Residence. The 2008 dance collaboration, Eau, with Carolyn Carlson and the Orchestra National de Lille, later became Tide Harmonic, described by its composer as: "... a kind of water symphony that, rather than constructing a poetic or narrative programme inspired by man's relationship with water, instead focuses on the substance itself, the forces that act upon it, & the energy that flows through and from it".

Talbot most recently worked with choreographer Christopher Wheeldon on Alice's Adventures In Wonderland for The Royal Ballet to very enthusiastic reviews.

This is Signum's second disc of Talbot's work, and comes five years after Path of Miracles (SIGCD078) with the professional chamber choir Tenebrae, Nigel Short's exceptional ensemble.

"The former Divine Comedian's latest project is an engrossing concept album about water, evoked in its various elemental states across a five-part suite bookended with a brief orchestral torrent supplanted by the resonant ringing of Tibetan temple bowls." -The Independent
