The Keble College Choir release their new CD today, entitled Ceremonial Oxford: Music for the Georgian University by William Hayes. The project is a collaboration between the Choir, under Music Director Matthew Martin, and period instrument ensemble Instruments of Time & Truth. The recording is already garnering rave reviews, including a five-star rating in Early Music Review.
The debut recording of Instruments of Happiness (IoH) combines elements of experimental art-rock, chamber music, electroacoustics, orchestral music, and more. ...Allan Kozinn, in the CD’s Introduction, remarks that the electric guitar’s amplification and sound-shaping possibilities have “given the guitar a kaleidoscopic palette that orchestra players couldn’t have dreamed of".
