This is the second volume in the EP series ‘The Library’. The idea behind this series is to explore both the history, and the new horizons, of our close-harmony repertoire. Close-harmony is the part of their work for which we are best known, and our library of thousands of arrangements is one we’re determined to explore, maintain and develop.
The track-listing is designed to celebrate some old favourites from the library alongside brand new arrangements and adaptations, created especially for these recordings, which may perhaps become ‘old favourites’ of the future.
Volume 2 was recorded in the beautiful surroundings of Snape Maltings, Suffolk (UK) – a place most famous for its association with Benjamin Britten – and it proved to be a relaxing and inspiring place to work for two beautiful wintry days.
