Louth Contemporary Music Society celebrates some of the most world's most popular contemporary composers! This new disc, A Place Between, features world premiere recordings of works by Tavener, Part, Silvestrov, and Knaifel as well as pieces by Górecki and John Cage - all of whom have, in various ways, been deeply influenced by profound spiritual, religious, or cultural encounters. The release features a number of renowned performers including soprano Patricia Rozario, the Callino Quartet, pianist Michael McHale, violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan, flautist Vourneen Ryan, and percussionist Stephen Kelly. The recordings were made in the acoustically superb historic setting of St. Peter's Church of Ireland in Drogheda, and the mixing, mastering, and editing were carried out in the state-of-the-art Rainbow Studios in Oslo.
