Bringing their world-class songwriting and musicianship to bear on ten new songs is the hugely popular Helge Lien Trio with their new album 'Badgers And Other Beings'. Think E.S.T. with Bill Evans' lyricism and Keith Jarret's storytelling thrown in and you have Helge Lien's distinctly Nordic jazz trio sound
Originally released as a vinyl EP for Record Store Day, 'Songs Beneath The River' from Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo features four songs specially chosen by Emily and the band from a list they had put together of music that informed and inspired the writing and arranging on their critically acclaimed album 'Dear River'. They are 'Do Right Woman, Do Right Man' performed by Aretha Franklin, Patti Smith's 'Easter', Bruce Springsteen's 'Tougher Than the Rest' and Linda Thompson's version of Tom Waits' 'Day After Tomorrow'.
New from Magnificat is 'The Tudors At Prayer' which opens with Mundy's towering 'Vox Patris caelestis'; immensely vivid and colourful this is a powerful performance to challenge any that has gone before. Equally enthralling as Magnificat's critically acclaimed 'Spem in alium', but with even richer textures, 'Vox Patris caelestis' perfectly demonstrates Magnificat's heaven-sent sound.
