The Staves – as downy and delicate as an eider chick…

We listened to the title track:

It starts with the tiniest droplets of string-sound – then the first voice leaks out – like ink from parchment.

Gently, softly the accompaniment builds up – downy and delicate as an eider chick.

Then the drums pelt down, brass sounds create smooth orange discontent – and these transcends the vapour clouds of choral harmony … and it is then that we return to our own earthly kingdom.

Back into a world in which we shed real blood.
