English Delight is a tribute to the viola and English composers from across different eras and styles. From John Dowland to Jonathan Harvey, Adrien La Marca takes us on a journey through four centuries. Each composer influences the next, but each speaks their own different and sublime language.
With the release of Tapestry, Michael Hoppe has once again bestowed upon the world a recording of stunning beauty and incredible emotional depth. Hoppe has been one of my very favorite artists since I first discovered his music in 1998, and he seems to just keep getting better with each new release. Hoppe has created a trademark of sorts by including photos taken by his grandfather, E.O. Hoppe, to illustrate the music.Kathy Parsons
