Love Reconciled

We are enjoying The Marais Project's latest recording of works by Marin Marais and other 17th and 18th century composers. The cd is beautifully packaged and includes comprehensive information about the composers, works, performers and even the instruments used to perform the music.

The group have included one contemporary work - Stephen Yates' Love Reconciled or The Rewards of Evil, which is a world premiere recording.

But as good as the cd is, the best way to hear the music is to attend one of the group's concerts, because live performance gives so much more than can be captured in an audio recording.

Good Vibrations from Celia Sheen

Couldn't resist the reference to Brian Wilson's iconic song, which also uses the theremin.
