A unique medieval and fantasy collaboration between composer and performer David Yardley and some of Australia’s finest musicians from the Sydney Chamber Choir, the Song Company and Pastance, also featuring guest contributions by renowned New York-based medieval ensemble Concordian Dawn under the direction of Christopher Preston Thompson.
Inspired by his lifelong immersion in authentic medieval sound, Yardley’s compositions conjure lost music of the mythic isle of Avalon, from Arthurian legend. The album journeys through long-forgotten medieval sacred and secular texts, whose music from their own time has not survived. It also includes musical settings of evocative fantasy poetry and contemporary Australian works, including by award-winning poet Anne Casey.
Order the new album at the early price of $19.95 (USD). You will receive the album as a direct download and on CD, as well as the album booklet. The album is scheduled for release in December 2023.
