Reviews

 

01/02/2003 The Guardian

“Improvisational talent is a key to the collaboration between the Orlando Consort and Perfect Houseplants: medieval musicians had to be as routinely flexible as jazz players. The Orlandos are a multi-award winning early music vocal group; the Houseplants are a distinctively pastoral British quartet However, Extempore II (Harmonia Mundi ) is more composition based than their previous work together, an hour-long Latin mass based on the medieval melody, L’Homme Armé. When the full band plays behind the vocals, as on saxophonist Mark Lockheart’s Mercy, Mercy, there’s a vestigial trace of the Coltrane quartet’s Psalm, from A Love Supreme. Pianist Huw Warren contributes Crier, a robust piece that pushes both ensembles in new directions, and the mass opens and closes on two more Warren compositions, he Man, the Man, and Dona Nobis Pacem, a beautifully restrained and gorgeous recessional.”

“Ground breaking, not one for the faint hearted”
