NEW ALBUM – RECKONINGS Laura Cannell & André Bosman

Reckonings Album Front

Release Date: 13/7/18

RECKONINGS The new album from Experimental Violin Duo Laura Cannell & André Bosman features 6 tracks that were recorded in single takes in the medieval church of St Andrew’s in Raveningham, Norfolk, UK. A small stone church at the edge of the marshes and reedbeds of East Anglia. Echoes of 12th century monophonic songs mingle with re-animated and imagined voices of long sleeping Saxons.  The duo’s improvisations bring the secular back into the sacred space. Reckonings was recorded through the seasons with wind rattling, sun burning and snow melting.
