Notes and Editorial Reviews

Seventh Heaven - a brand new double album of orchestral and acoustic portraits from Ant and composer & arranger Andrew Skeet

In 2008 Ant was commissioned by UPPM to write a set of film-orientated pieces for full orchestra and was subsequently introduced to composer and arranger Andrew Skeet, who created some outstanding arrangements for the pieces. The orchestral tracks were recorded by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir in their home city in December 2008, with additional tracks being recorded at Rak Studios in London and at Ant's own studio.

Having enjoyed their work together, Ant and Andrew teamed up again to work on some more material the following year. For this second phase they
Read more co-wrote some new pieces and also worked on adding string arrangements to some of Ant's compositions which had first been heard in acoustic form on his solo album Field Day. The pieces were recorded at Angel Studios in London in October 2009, with Andrew conducting a string orchestra of leading session players.

A further recording session with a full 70 piece orchestra at the world famous Abbey Road studios in London took place in November 2011 where some of the pieces first recorded during the sessions in Prague were re-recorded. Seventh Heaven draws on material from all three phases of recording to create an outstanding collection.

Featured soloists on the album include singers Lucy Crowe and Belinda Sykes, guitarist John Parricelli, cellist Chris Worsey, percussionist Paul Clarvis and sax & woodwind player Martin Robertson, who has contributed to a number of Ant's previous album releases.
