Inspired by the extraordinary 10thcentury gospel book, Richard Ingham
leads Strangeness & Charm in a concert of
plainsong, reels and electronic soundscapes:
a sonic rollercoaster, with bells. The 12-part
suite, commissioned by The Book of Deer
Project, creates musical images of the book
itself, the early monastery in Deer, and the
local working community. Movements include
The Light of Columba, Cathal’s Banquet, St
Drostan at Deer, This Splendid Little Book,
Dancing in the Margin and Still Shining.
Richard Ingham, saxophones, whistles, bass clarinet, wind
synthesiser
Maarten Verbraeken, trumpet, flugel horn
Fraser Burke, keyboards, accordion
May Halyburton, bass
Andy James, drums and percussion
