Notes & Reviews:

This groundbreaking program from Geoffrey Webber's consistently inventive choir seeks to recreate three distinct sound-worlds: 7th Century hymns from Iona, 10th Century chants from Celtic foundations in Switzerland, and 14th century Columban antiphons from the Inchcolm Libellus. As well as the evidence of early notation and of drawings and other indications of instrumentation, the performance styles - developed in an exciting extended collaboration with scholar and piper Barnaby Brown - are informed by oral traditions from as far afield as Sardinia and the Outer Hebrides.
