(Australia - Import)
In the spirit of Jan Garbarek's bestselling Officium with the Hilliard Ensemble, comes Andrew Robson's 'bearing the bell: The hymns of Thomas Tallis'. Hear Robson, along with three of the finest and most respected jazz musicians in Australia, if not the world - sandy Evans, James greening and Steve Elphick - explore and interpret the hymns of English renaissance composer Thomas Tallis. By transforming the haunting and mesmeric melodies of Tallis, Andrew Robson is engaging with the hymns at the deepest and most profound level. This is musical collaboration at it's most extreme - a collaboration across nearly half a millennium! This album is destined to become a classic and will garner acclaim for it's beauty, exquisite arrangements and sheer genius of expression.
