Product description

Review

"Faber has a quirky imagination and a sharp eye, is clever but sympathetic to the reader, generous and sincere." (The Independent)

"This is a beautifully distilled piece of work. Its brevity cannot disguise its depth, indeed it emphasises it... The story is told with a dry wit that should carry a warning for the reader not to strike a match anywhere in the book's vicinity. This is a beautifully-assured novella." (Hugh MacDonald The Herald)

"Rites of passage don't come much subtler than this. Or, oddly, given the subject matter, much funnier." (New Statesman)

"His prose veers sharply from a delectable descriptiveness to spikily comic insights. Cerebral and observant ... here is a talent in the ascendant." (The Observer)

Synopsis

"The Courage Consort", possibly the seventh best-known acappella vocal ensemble in Britain, are given two weeks in a Belgian chateau to rehearse their latest commission, the complicated Partitum Mutante. But can the piece be performed?
