BBC Radio 3 – Record Review: Fading

We were delighted to be featured on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review this morning with our third album: Fading.

Anna Lapwood was discussing our recording with Andrew McGregor:

“I think The Gesualdo Six and Owain Park are just incredible at this ingenious programming, so there’s this melding of renaissance polyphony with contemporary choral music.

“I feel it’s a very classy way to look at music by female composers that people might not know… It’s just extremely good all woven together with this thread of music for night-time, music for compline.

Blend and intonation really are [impeccable]… You can tell this is a group that work together almost constantly, they know each other’s voices so well… solo singing with a really clear sensitivity of ensemble.

“A beautiful recording.”

It was lovely to hear the title track by Joanna Marsh being played nation-wide and our own Owain Park’s Phos Hilaron. Keen fans might notice that we were reviewed alongside The Marian Consort’s Singing in Secret featuring Michael and his fiancée Helen and also De Profundis’ Esquivel: Missa Hortus Conclusus which Guy is singing on also, so quite a bumper week!

You can listen again to the broadcast by clicking here, and hear our segment by playing from 2:02:00 in.
