Notes and Editorial Reviews

Another hallmark collaboration, this album was created by Concerto Caledonia and guests during a week’s residency in the Suffolk countryside at Aldeburgh. Traditional and original songs are interspersed with old and new tunes from Scotland, all informed by the group’s magpie diversity and by Britten’s folksong arrangements, which they found in Aldeburgh’s library. The resulting alchemy of nu-folk with an early music sensibility defies categorisation.
