Notes & Reviews:

The unique blend of flute, viola and harp consolidates the entire orchestral palette into its three essential components, enabling Aureole to perform with an infinite array of colors and sounds. Aureole's most recent disc of Celtic music was praised by AllMusic.com: "the ensemble's sweet and velvety tone makes the music shimmer." Zodiac Trio was written for personal friends of composer William Mathias, each of whom was born under a different sign of the zodiac: Pisces, Aries and Taurus. Bax's Celtic-inspired Elegiac Trio creates an atmosphere of peace and contentment, while Jan Bach's Eisteddfod takes on medievalesque Welsh characteristics.
