a scottish baroque album in the making
In March 2014 I took the time to record a selection of pieces in the magnificent Manoir de Kernault, France. The repertoire was based on scottish baroque compositions for the violin, english baroque vocal compositions, traditional scottish tunes, and some music of my own invention. My goal was to feature some wonderful 18th Century scots pieces which so magically blend both baroque and traditional music styles, as well as allowing myself the liberty of a more modern arrangement of similar tunes. Old and New and Trad, sitting side by side.
The recording was primarily of baroque violin, but also encompassed viola d'amore, viola da gamba, baroque cello, baroque voice, guitar and traditional scots song.
An album launch is underway for 2015 in Australia.
