This review is from: Fair Albion: Visions of England - New Works by Patrick Hawes (Elin Manahan Thomas/Julian Lloyd Webber/Claire Jones) (Audio CD)First and foremost, this is a beautiful album well worth buying. A lovely mixture of different instruments - piano, cello, harp, voice & harp, string quartets etc, all creating a fine album.
My only query is with the description "New works", erm, Reflexionem & Quanta Qualia have been released by Patrick Hawes before and After the Rain was surely on Classic FM's 2005 release 'The Quiet Room'. Maybe 'New arrangements' might have been more acurate. But, don't let that put you off this CD!
Reflexionem (in this setting) is so beautiful (not that it wasn't on Towards the Light') , Julian Lloyd-Webber plays with sensativity, well supported by the sensative harp of Claire Jones.
So, whether you already have 'Blue in Blue', 'Towards the light' or 'The Quiet Room', one or none of these, add this to your collection, you will not regret it.
