Pleasures & Treasures - 50 Tracks from 50 Years
The Music Includes world music, traditional British music, early classical music on original instruments, novelty numbers, jazz, music hall, musical boxes, guitar quartets, saxophone quartet, brass group, viol consorts, choral music and chant, handbells and church bells, poetry and readings - from mediaeval times to the present day. This double album forms part of Saydisc’s 50th Anniversary celebration releases and is drawn from recordings made over the years from mono open reel recording to high quality stereo digital. Saydisc has always kept up with the latest technology and has always taken enormous care with recording and editing procedures and weathered many an economic storm due to its wide range of unusual music and global outlook. The personal selection by the partners, Gef and Genny Lucena, embraces classical, world music, traditional and other genres and is truly a kaleidoscope of rare and beautiful music.
|Review||“Give this a chance (2 CDs for the price of one). It makes diverting and varied listening and will have you wondering about the large back-catalogue maintained by these three labels and Wyastone Estate. Full details are given in the delightful 32 page booklet with a sustaining chunk of text for each track.” Rob Barnett, musicweb-international.com|
