I'm delighted that Discantus are releasing sunt etenim pennae volucres mihi on their CD 'Music for a King' next month! The recording also features music from the 11th century Winchester Troper, transcribed by Susan Rankin, and another new work by Pierre Chépélov. The new works both reflect the music of the Winchester Troper – the earliest source of notated polyphony – and overall it's a very intriguing collection, sung beautifully by Discantus, under the direction of Brigitte Legne. You can hear my piece, and Brigitte discussing the project (in French) in the last ten minutes of a recent Radio France Musique broadcast here.

I've added two recordings of recent works to the 'Music' section – haruspex and Surfacing. Please have a listen!
