This 60 minute / 6 track CD is quite interesting and mostly rather beautiful sounding. It is a big project of several needed participants. Since these are orchestral / choral versions of certain Fripp soundscapes, Robert Fripp strongly approved of the idea, David Singleton of DGM was involved, Bert Lams of the California Guitar Trio somehow managed to transcribe several soundscapes to music notation, Dr. Andrew Keeling did the orchestrations, and Jan Stulen conducted the pieces with the Metropole Orkest in Holland. The booklet with the CD tells the history of this project with helpful photos. For some reason, over 9 minute 'Pie Jesu' both opens and closes the CD as tracks 1 and 6. That was the first Frippscape transcribed by Lams. Two of Fripp's soundscapes were retitled as longest tracks 4 and 5, called 'Miserere Mei' and 'Requiescat' respectively. Only those two tracks include a large choral component, as well as the orchestra. Recommended especially for people familiar with and fond of some of Robert Fripp's soundscape CDs released, starting with a flurry of them in the mid 1990s. In fact, the arrangements on this CD are all derived from tracks on Fripp's 'Gates of Paradise' and 'That Which Passes' CDs, both of which I own.
A sidelight: In 1992-94, just before the 'double trio' King Crimson hit, Robert Fripp and stick player Trey Gunn joined with the California Guitar Trio (CGT), including Bert Lams, Paul Edwards, and Hideyo Moriya for some concerts and one CD as the 'Robert Fripp String Quintet' or RFSQ Bridge Between, so that association may have contributed to Bert Lams' large involvement in the present project. In that RFSQ period seems to be about when Fripp was arriving at his digital soundscaping techniques. Terrifying, terrific, and long 'Threnody for Souls in Torment', which closes the RFSQ CD is likely a combined Fripp soundscape with a Gunn stick onslaught and the CGT not playing.
