The Lost Codex of Avalon: Pre-Order
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 a guest contribution by renowned medieval organist, Cristina Alís Raurich. 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.
