Recorded through the seasons with wind rattling, sun burning and snow melting, RECKONINGS – the new album from experimental violin duo Laura Cannell & André Bosman – features 6 tracks that were recorded in single takes in a medieval stone church at the edge of the marshes and reed-beds of East Anglia. Echoes of 12th century monophonic songs mingle with re-animated and imagined voices of long-sleeping Saxons. The duo’s improvisations bring the secular back into the sacred space.
RECKONINGS is released on Brawl Records on 13 July. Stream ‘Trails’ and ‘Strands’ from the album below:
